- Timothy Gledhill, 40, wept in court when he was told his appeal had failed
- He told the judge that 'holding a water pistol isn't illegal, it's a toy'
- Sour faced Judge Nigel, at Canterbury Crown Court, said what he did 'wasn't funny'
Timothy Gledhill, 40, wept in court when he was told a judge would not be overturning the conviction.
Gledhill feared professional ruin after he was found guilty of soaking his furious victim with a child's toy in a 'humiliating' attack during two heated rows.
During the appeal he was asked if the water had struck Catherine Weir in the attack and Gledhill told the judge and two magistrates that it was a question of probability.
He said he had fired the water pistol and could not rule out that water had not accidentally hit her, but added: 'I haven't done anything wrong.'
