Mr Fuller is charged with causing racially aggravated fear or provocation of violence over an alleged incident with his neighbour.

He also faces charges of affray and possessing an offensive weapon after being accused of using a baseball bat to indiscriminately attack occupied cars.

He was remanded in custody and is due to appear at the Old Bailey on Friday.
