Dudley man given community service following ugly pub brawl
12:50pm Monday 25th February 2013 in News
A 30 YEAR-old Dudley man involved in an ugly punch-up in a pub has been ordered to carry out 100 hours unpaid work in the community.
Simon Parsons, of Waterloo Street, got involved in a fight with a man in the Myvod pub in Wednesbury, said Paul Reid prosecuting.
He said at Wolverhampton Crown Court during the skirmish they collided with a woman sitting on a stool while a second female customer in the pub was knocked backwards.
After his arrest Parsons told police officers he had downed seven or eight pints and admitted he was responsible for sparking off the incident.
Parsons admitted affray and was further ordered to pay £535 costs by Recorder Richard Bond.
The Recorder told him he had caused "fear and upset" to people drinking in the public house and added: "I do hope you feel ashamed of the way you behaved."
Mr Reid said Parsons also picked up a bar stool at the end of the scuffle and held it over his head but "sensibly" then put it back down on the floor.
