A convicted criminal who won a £9.7 million National Lottery jackpot is facing another jail sentence — seven months after saying he was "turning over a new leaf".
Former dustman Michael Carroll, 22, who has homes in Downham Market and Swaffham, Norfolk, has admitted affray after threatening teenagers with a baseball bat at a Christian Fellowship music event in Downham Market in May 2004.
He entered a guilty plea during a Crown Court hearing in Norwich on Thursday and is due to be sentenced next month.
In June, Carroll told journalists that he was changing his ways and felt that calling him a "lout" was wrong.
"I don't want to go back to prison," Carroll told the BBC. "I have turned over a new leaf and want to get on the straight and narrow path."
Carroll was speaking three days after magistrates in King's Lynn, Norfolk, made him the subject of an anti-social behavior order (Asbo) after hearing how he caused more than £3,000 damage by catapulting ball bearings through car windows as he was driven along a road in a black Mercedes with the number plate L111 OUT.
In July 2004, Carroll was given a five-month jail term after breaching a drug treatment and testing order imposed when he was convicted of possessing cocaine.
Probation officers said he had failed to attend half his scheduled drug test appointments. He was released from prison in September 2004.
Carroll won the lottery in November 2002 and picked up his check while wearing an electronic tag which magistrates had ordered to be fitted after he was convicted of drunk and disorderly behavior.
