Man was hit with a pint glass
A MAN accused of twice punching a Pole in a pub then smashing a pint glass over his head received a twelve weeks suspended jail term yesterday.
Adam Porter, 30, of Upper Mostyn Street, Llandudno, who has a home improvements business, must also carry out 200 hours unpaid work and an exclusion order bans him from licensed premises at the town for a year.
He admitted common assault on David Madja last April. CCTV footage of the attack was shown to magistrates at Llandudno.
They ordered Porter to pay £380 costs.
Prosecutor Julia Galston said Mr Madja was sitting with a colleague in the Kings Arms pub at Llandudno when he was assaulted. He had several cuts and was taken to Ysbyty Glan Clwyd but discharged himself before receiving treatment.
Porter told police he had been very drunk and couldn’t recall using the glass as a weapon.
Mrs Galston added that the defendant was banned from Llandudno pubs and had been escorted from the Kings Arms before he re-entered the bar.
“He has previous convictions in relation to violence,” the prosecutor remarked.
Court chairwoman Manu Patiar told Porter: “The attack was unprovoked and it was fortunate the complainant didn’t sustain lifethreatening injuries. You used glass as a weapon.”
