His lawyer Jeremy Wickham said Ingledew, 35, who admitted two counts of criminal damage, was not thinking straight and had jealous thoughts in his head.
The court gave him a 12 month conditional discharge and ordered him to pay his girlfriend £65 to replace her burned knickers and carry out 40 hours of unpaid work.
