ACHEF wielded a foot­long knife and then at­tacked a diner af­ter cus­tomers com­plained about his food.

A court heard that Marco Sevilla, 37, had been drink­ing on duty as a chef in the Puss in Boots pub in Mac­cles­field and lost his tem­per. When man­ager Deb­bie Threlfall con­fronted him, Sevilla, who’d drunk eight bot­tles of beer, flew into a rage then picked up a kitchen knife and started wav­ing it around close to her, de­mand­ing his wages.

He slammed the knife down, break­ing it, be­fore stum­bling into the bar to con­tinue his out­burst in front of cus­tomers.

When one cus­tomer Wayne Lo­mas stepped in, he was at­tacked by Sevilla who pushed his face knock­ing him back­wards. A judge at Ch­ester Crown Court sen­tenced Sevilla, who was in prison for other of­fences, to an­other six months be­hind bars.
