ANGRY Adam Webb slashed all four tyres on his partner's car after she told him their relationship was over.
He warned Tina Young he was about to attack her vehicle as he waved a screwdriver at her through a window.
And after he ruined the tyres he sent her a text message saying: "Have fun going out with four flat wheels."
"His partner was terrified and called the police," prosecutor Laura Mardell told Ely magistrates.

The incident on March 15 began when Webb arrived at Ms Young's home, ready for a trip to Ely, said Miss Mardell. But the couple argued, and as the incident escalated, Webb was told the relationship was over.
He went to the garage, waving a screwdriver, and told Ms Young: "You might as well call the police; I am going to slash your tyres and smash your car."
Mitigating, Jacqui Baldwin said Webb had been given the tyres by a friend, and had planned to put them on a grass track vehicle; but he later gave them to his partner as a gift.
"It was a difficult break up," she said. "There was lots of mind games going on, and he lost his temper."
Webb, who has a "care-of" address in High Street, Sutton, was given a 100-hour unpaid work order, and told to pay �160 compensation and �85 costs.
"You put your partner in a situation where she was vulnerable and had no vehicle, she felt threatened and frightened," said magistrate Hamish Ross. "You have an issue with your temper, you have got to be man enough to control it, or walk away.
