PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A twisted thug ran over a man after attempting to hit his ex-partner with his car - before hitting her with a tyre wrench. Luke Scanlon dropped his kids off at his mother's house on May 25, 2019, whilst his former girlfriend made arrangements to go out for the evening. Minshull Street Crown Court heard during the night she had an argument with her then-boyfriend and he walked home. Scanlon's ex-girlfriend's new partner was walking home when he noticed a car following him - he quickly realised it was Scanlon. Prosecuting, Matthew Curtis said Scanlon attempted to run him over but he fled and called his partner, who then called Scanlon and told him where she was. His partner and a number of others were waiting on a street in Shaw when they saw his car 'flying' round the corner. Scanlon, of Oldham Road, Royton, was jailed for three years and six months and disqualified from driving for five years and seven months.

As Scanlon tried to drive off, the man managed to stand up, but Scanlon reversed and hit him again, dragging him underneath the car. The man managed to flee and hide behind a garden wall which Scanlon crashed into, the court heard. He then ran towards his ex carrying a tyre wrench, struck her to the leg and in the same breath said: "You're dead... I love you". Scanlon pleaded guilty to causing serious injury by dangerous driving and assault occasioning actual bodily harm and was today (May 14) jailed for three and a half years.

. Having got out of the car, he then ran at his ex and swung the wrench at her leg causing her to fall. As she lay on the floor he swung the weapon back but stopped as her boyfriend ran towards him and told her: "I love you, but I could kill you". Half an hour later he sent her a series of text messages suggesting that he wanted to deliberately hurt her without the children there to witness it, the prosecutor added. The man was left with several injuries including a 12 centimetre by 7.5 centimetre burn to his right forearm, bruising and grazes on his legs, three large lumps on his back and scarring. His ex-partner recovered quickly from her injuries. His ex-girlfriend said that if it wasn't for the children she would have a restraining order. Scanlon was said to have a number of previous convictions for battery, possessing drugs, affray, assaulting a police officer and most recent drink driving in 2020.

Mitigating, Adrian Farrow said his client has a long standing condition of anxiety and depression. "He thought he had been lured there," he said. "His reaction was inappropriate and disproportionate and he sincerely regrets it." Sentencing him, Judge John Potter said: "That night you were dangerously driving your car as a weapon to inflict serious injury. "You then armed yourself with another weapon and caused harm to a second victim and the mother of your children. "You chose to put yourself in the situation you found yourself to be in that night."
