    An ex-binman who became public enemy no.1 in 2021 after he booted the head of a child’s snowman has now smashed a police station door in a separate offence.

    Callum Woodhouse, 21, went viral in January 2021 when he was spotted on CCTV smashing a 6ft-tall snowman in Hereford while doing his rounds as a binman.

    The snowflake slayer was quickly sacked by his employer, Herefordshire Council, after he boasted about being the “snowman killer” who savagely attacked the three-year-old boy’s snowman while emptying his family’s bins.

    The blizzard butcher said at the time: “I’m out of work now just for kicking a snowman.

    “I’m going to be a dad now. I’ve lost my job, f**ked over a snowman. I have a family to feed,” he added.

    Two years on from the savage snowy slaughter, Callum was put in front of a judge for criminal damage and possessing a knife in a public place after lashing out in a police station.

    The yob flew into a rage in a police station and ended up smashing a door after he felt he wasn’t getting any help while making an inquiry at the front desk.

    After he was restrained and arrested, he revealed he had a kitchen knife hidden in his sock.

    Woodhouse pleaded guilty to both charges and was handed a 132 day prison sentence, suspended for 18 months at Hereford Magistrates Court, where he was also made to pay prosecution costs of £135 and a £154 victim surcharge.

    Marilena Di Vitantonio, defending, told the judge: "I think you will gather that mental health plays a big part in this."

    The court heard Woodhouse had been seen by mental health professionals, but that he had gone to the police station as he felt he needed more help.

    The lawyer added: "He was unable to get that help and kicked out at the door in frustration.

    "He would welcome a community order with open arms as he feels he needs help and no-one is listening."
