Vig­i­lante in drag caged for as­sault

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A CAGEFIGHTER who found fame af­ter floor­ing yobs while dressed in drag has been jailed for beat­ing up his fe­male cousin.

Daniel “Lion­heart” Ler­well, 25, hit the head­lines in 2009 when he and a pal were cap­tured on CCTV clob­ber­ing trou­ble­mak­ers while wear­ing fish­nets.

The clip went around the world and led to a spate of TV ap­pear­ances.

But Ler­well, from Swansea, was sent to prison for four months af­ter at­tack­ing Re­becca Ler­well on New Year’s Day – punch­ing, kick­ing and throw­ing shoes at her.

Ler­well, who de­nied the charge, said: “I pushed her back be­cause I thought she was go­ing to hit me.

“My mother heard what she said and started fight­ing with her, and I broke it up.

“I did push her, but no way did I punch or kick that girl.”

Swansea Mag­is­trates found Ler­well guilty of com­mon as­sault. He was jailed and given a re­strain­ing or­der not to contact his cousin.
