THE brother of a man killed during a fight has been spared jail after he wrecked cars belonging to the family of two of the men involved in the brawl.

Christopher Baker, 19, caused £37,750 worth of damage to eight high value cars, including two Porsches and a Mercedes, belonging to Stuart Evans, father of Oliver and Christopher O'Bryan, who were cleared of the manslaughter of Mr Baker's brother, Paul, in April this year.

Paul Baker, 25, of Westhurst Drive, Chislehurst, cracked his head on the pavement and died 32 hours after the fight outside The Lounge in Whitehorse Hill, Chislehurst, on May 7 last year.

At Croydon Crown Court on Friday, June 20, Christopher Baker pleaded guilty to eight counts of criminal damage, receiving a 36-week jail term, suspended for two years and a £500 fine.

He is also required to undertake 200 hours of community service.

On December 8 last year, Baker went to Leas Green, Chislehurst where he scratched and slashed the tyres of an A Class Mercedes, a Nissan Navara, two Landrovers, two Porshe Carreras, a Dodge Ram 1500 and a BMW M3.

The wrecked cars were discovered at around 8.30am and police found Baker's blood at the scene and CCTV images identified him.

Mr Evans' sons were on remand awaiting trial when Baker committed the criminal damage.
