Glass chucker ‘Rid­ing Hood’ is banged-up

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

A WOMAN who was dressed up as Lit­tle Red Rid­ing Hood when she threw a beer bot­tle into an­other woman’s face has been jailed for 18 months.

Han­nah Shot­bolt ( above), 23, lost her tem­per while out with a group of friends also dressed as nurs­ery story char­ac­ters, Glouces­ter Crown Court heard.

The blonde hurled a bot­tle at a woman she had been ar­gu­ing with but missed and hit an in­no­cent by­stander, cut­ting her mouth and dam­ag­ing three teeth.

The court heard it was not her first of­fence of vi­o­lence.

In 2008 she threw a glass at a barman and when she missed she picked up an­other glass and hit him with it.

And ear­lier in the same year she had punched a woman dur­ing an ar­gu­ment in Glouces­ter city cen­tre and pulled her hair.

Sen­tenc­ing her, Recorder Stephen Hall said: “The throw­ing of bro­ken glass in public which gives rise to in­jury can only and must only re­sult in the im­po­si­tion of an im­me­di­ate cus­to­dial sen­tence.”
