Daily Mail - - Life - Daily Mail Re­porter

A WOMAN who stripped naked and at­tacked her boyfriend with a wine bot­tle dur­ing a drunken ho­tel row was spared jail yes­ter­day.

Amelia Ox­en­ford, a 21-year-old vet’s as­sis­tant, was filmed shov­ing Alex But­tigieg out of their room in As­cot Hyde Park Ho­tel in Bayswa­ter, cen­tral Lon­don, in Jan­uary.

CCTV footage showed her chas­ing him through a cor­ri­dor with the bot­tle. Mr But­tigieg said she later threw it at him.

The cou­ple – who had shared two bot­tles of wine and cock­tails – had been ar­gu­ing over Ox­en­ford see­ing an­other man when they briefly sep­a­rated. By the time po­lice ar­rived, Ox­en­ford had snatched Mr But­tigieg’s glasses off and slashed his nose with a shard of bro­ken glass in their room.

She was found guilty of as­sault and caus­ing £300 of crim­i­nal dam­age on Mon­day. Ox­en­ford, of Steeple Mor­den, Cam­bridgeshir­e, wept as she was sen­tenced at West­min­ster Mag­is­trates’ Court. District Judge Ken Grant handed her a 12-month com­mu­nity or­der with a ten-day re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion re­quire­ment and 160 hours of un­paid work. She must also pay a court bill of £950 – £620 in costs, £250 in com­pen­sa­tion to Mr But­tigieg and a £80 vic­tim sur­charge.
