A Welsh man who kept calling police to complain that McPartlin was still on television after his conviction has been jailed for 19 weeks. He had been on a suspended 10-week sentence before this case began.
McPartlin did not go to prison for drink driving. He was charged an £86,000 fine and given a 20-month driving ban.
David Kates-Lowick, 57, admitted to breaching an order by contacting Dyfed-Powys Police when it was not a genuine police matter.
The prosecutor said four calls were made to the police in three days, during which Kates-Lowick told call handlers he was frustrated that McPartlin could still drive and be on TV when others had lost their jobs over similar convictions.
The defence argued Kates-Lowick had called the 101 non-emergency line, not 999, and added that the contents of the phone calls suggested he had “significant mental health issues” and constituted “a plea for help”.
