‘Wigga’ abuse door­man done

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A WHITE door­man was found guilty of racism abuse for shout­ing “wigga” at a neigh­bour who is also white.

Kyle Stevens, 25, stood on top of his car and used the word – slang for a white per­son who wishes they were black – at Zelia Jones as she walked past him with her chil­dren.

A court was told: “An of­fence can be racially ag­gra­vated even when the per­son is not of an eth­nic mi­nor­ity but as­so­ci­ated to an eth­nic mi­nor­ity.

Stevens, of Llan­drindod Wells, Mid Wales, de­nied shout­ing racist abuse but was found guilty of a racially ag­gra­vated pub­lic or­der of­fence.

Bre­con JPs made him sub­ject to a 12 month com­mu­nity or­der with a re­quire­ment he carry out 150 hours un­paid work.
