A Newcastle University professor has appeared at court accused of causing more than £17,000 damage to cars in Jesmond.
Prof Stephen Graham, 47, made no plea to criminal damage charges at Newcastle Magistrates’ Court.
He is accused of scratching words into several cars in the Jesmond area of Newcastle.
Luxury car owners found words such as ‘really wrong’, 'arbitrary' and 'very silly' scratched on to their vehicles with a screwdriver.
After a short hearing the case was adjourned until November 14.
