Ben Haworth-Booth photographed the illegally parked Porsche in the center of a town near St. Asaph in North Wales, unaware that the driver of the car was the wife of ex-gangster John Gizzi.
The court heard Rachel Parland call her husband of 49 years, Gizzi, to resolve the disagreement before calling Mr. Haworth-Booth: “You will be sorry if you find out who my husband is.
Gizzi then located Mr. Haworth-Booth before lifting him up by the head and slapping him.
Mr. Haworth-Booth told the court: ‘His chest was swollen and his arms were swaying. He said, “You pissed off my wife. You mistreated my wife.”
