Heartbroken Claire Holley smashed her boyfriend’s car into the bowling alley where he worked – after he ditched her on Facebook.
The jilted 31-year-old took his silver Ford Focus, revved the engine, then rammed it into two security bollards and the glass double doors, causing £14,000 of damage.
Terrified staff and customers fled for cover at the Hollywood Bowl in Middlebrook, Bolton, Greater Manchester.
The car ended up perched against one of the customer service counters – where her newly ex-boyfriend Davy Jones worked.
Hours earlier Jones, who is the father of one of her two children, ended their relationship.
Holley was sentenced this week to a nine-month jail term at Bolton Crown Court, suspended for two years, after she pleaded guilty to dangerous driving at an earlier hearing.
She was also banned from driving for 18 months after admitting drink driving.
The mother had 50 microgrammes of alcohol on her breath – the legal limit is 35mg.
Geoff Whelan, prosecuting, told the court that Holley and Mr Jones had been in a two-year relationship and have one child together.
He added: ‘She dropped Mr Jones off at Hollywood Bowl at 5pm. She text asking him not to leave and to come back home.
‘She had written things on Facebook saying she was heartbroken and crushed. He turned his phone off.’
Holley, of Seddon Street, Little Hulton, Bolton, left her two children, aged 11 and five, with Mr Jones’ sister and set off in his silver Ford Focus after drinking half a bottle of wine and couple of large vodkas.
