Boss broke a driver’s jaw after he got him up early
CYCLING bosses have stripped American doper Lance Armstrong of his seven Tour de France titles.
That’s a grand way of saying that his bike rides don’t count anymore.
Arsed? Nope, nor me. But he’s still a c***. A DUTY manager broke a worker’s jaw when he was called in during his time off to deal with a paperwork problem.
Gary Cummings, 55, fractured Colin Henson’s jaw in two places with a single blow in his fury at being disturbed early in the morning.
A court heard that HGV driver Mr Henson had delivered a trailer to the Oneworld Logistics depot in Washington, Tyne and Wear, that morning but the paperwork he needed to complete his job was missing.
Newcastle Crown Court was told: “Mr Cummings was not happy at being called in at six am on May 31.
“Mr Henson pointed out that there was no paperwork and there was an exchange between the two men.
“Without warning Cummings punched Mr Henson in the face.”
The court heard the victim was taken to hospital where he was diagnosed as having a double fracture to his jaw. He needed surgery and had a metal plate fitted.
Cummings, of Sacriston, pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm.
He was sentenced to six months prison, suspended for 12 months, and ordered to pay £800 compo.
