Colin Comiskey portrayed today in front of the Court of Magistrates of Hendon, where he was convicted of assault
A former Saatchi and Saatchi designer was pushed onto the road by her furious former boyfriend during a discussion about her pet Rottweiler.
Colin Comiskey attacked designer Ellen Van de Vusse outside her home in London when they were involved in a furious argument over her dog.
The 35-year-old court maintained a relationship with Ms. Van de Vusse for about three years before their bitter separation.
Prosecutor Mo Miah said that Comiskey had left the dog Lola at Mrs. Van de Vusse's house in Fulham, southwest of London, on April 19.
Ms. Van de Vusse, now director of senior accounts at marketing agency OK COOL, cried when she told the Hendon Magistrates Court how Comiskey & # 39; broke into the house & # 39; while claiming your belongings.
She explained how she and Comiskey were sharing custody of the animal for four days a week, but she asked that it be a week at a time.
She said: "He started yelling at me about money and my new boyfriend. He grabbed a leash and then went back into the kitchen and gave the clue to Lola.
After a fight, Comiskey took Lola to the street followed by Mrs. Van De Vusse.

She added: "We were right outside the front door and I cut the neck." He used force at this point, Colin then pushed me down the road and ran down the road with her (Lola).
"I was standing in the street looking at him, I was going to be sick, I looked down at my arm and it was covered in blood."
Comiskey, who was not represented, denied having attacked Ms. Vusse and said that the injuries were not her fault.
But Magistrate Alexia Featherstone-Howe rejected her version of events, saying: "We have seen photographs of injuries and believe that these injuries are consistent with pushing and pulling.
"We believe that these injuries were inflicted by you."
Ms. Van de Vusse, now director of senior accounts at marketing agency OK COOL, sobbed by telling the Hendon Magistrates Court how Comiskey & # 39; assaulted her home & # 39;
Comiskey, of Hammersmith, was convicted of a common assault, which carries a maximum of six months in jail. They told him not to contact Ms. Vusse before the sentencing on September 27.
The court heard how the Irishman had appeared drunk on his ex's floor in January of this year and threw him a roast chicken.
They called the police and found Ms. Van De Vusse locked in the bathroom of the house they shared at that time in Kensington, London.
In July, Comiskey was sentenced to a community order of 18 months for that attack.
