A LITHUANIAN who used an interpreter in court had enough command of the English language to threaten a woman after she complained he was playing his music too loud on a March caravan site.Zydrunas Jonaitis told neighbour Sharon Flatters: "I will do what I like. I will burn you out." Jonaitis, 19, had said: "I do not live here, I do what I like. I have my music as loud as I like."Jonaitis was aggressive as he pointed to Ms Flatters, prosecutor Nicola Ebbs told Fenland magistrates on Tuesday, and stood very close to her."Ms Flatters thought she was going to be hit, so she went back into her caravan for safety," said Miss Ebbs. Site manager Dave Johnson told the male to leave.Jonaitis walked towards a caravan but then went back towards Ms Flatters and Mr Johnson, shouting and swearing. He was just a few feet away when he shouted his threat to burn Ms Flatter's caravan, and police were called to the Robingoodfellows Lane Caravan Park.Jonaitis told police he had been drunk. He remembered Ms Flatters shouting at him, asking for the music in the car to be turned down. He had not meant to threaten anyone, and would not have carried out his threat."Clearly, drink played a part in influencing his behaviour," said Michael Ruck, defending. Jonaitis was fined £120 with £55 costs.
