Angry computer expert attacked Scientologist - during a stress test

Matthew Hickey flew into a rage

high-flying computer expert went for a stress test at the Church of
Scientology – then flew into a rage and attacked the man testing him.
Hickey, 26, walked into the controversial church's Deansgate branch and
became angry when he was hooked up to an 'E-meter' stress-testing
He believed the device was actually a lie detector – and grabbed tester Brandon Sandler by the tie.
pair tussled and Mr Sandler fell backwards off his chair, injuring his
back and legs. The E-meter was kicked off the table in the struggle,
and smashed on the floor.
Hickey, 26, who was arrested at
the church, pleaded guilty at Manchester magistrates court to common
assault and criminal damage. He had gone into the church after a

The court heard how members of the public witnessed the assault that followed.
Mr Sandler, in a statement, described how he had been left shaken by the incident.
Hickey, who admitted he had begun to drink too often, will be sentenced next month.

The E-meter, which Mr Sandler said cost about £3,700, is the device at the heart of Scientology.
