British actor Patrick Westwood has been found guilty of harassment after "bullying" a gay neighbour in a series of arguments.
The 85 year old, who starred with Sir Michael Caine in The Last Valley, avoided jail time after a judge at Kingston Crown Court handed him a two-year supervision order.
Westwood is said to have provoked and humiliated homosexual Barrie Boxell, the manager of his apartment building in Wandsworth, south London.
The judge found him guilty of harassment and breaching restraining orders, telling him: "You made this man's life an absolute misery. It was premeditated bullying."
