North Devon Magistrates' Court

AN Xbox argument led to a man assaulting his partner and locking her out of her house.

Luke Goddard, 33, had been playing on his Xbox console all day on April 10 when an argument broke out with his partner, North Devon magistrates heard.

Goddard and his partner began shouting at each other before he pushed her out of the house in Bideford. Goddard, who now lives in Golf Links Road in Westward Ho!, pleaded guilty to assault on the basis he had used unlawful force by pushing her out of the door.

The pair had been together for 17 years and have children together. Goddard is now living with his mother.

The case was adjourned until July 26 for pre-sentence reports.
