A MAN who drank 15 pints of lager could not remember assaulting a pub doorman.
Flintshire Magistrates Court was told that Richard Harris, 30, of Mold Road, Gwersyllt, had already been banned from all pubs in the county for the next five years, under the PubWatch scheme.
He was ordered to do 150 hours unpaid work with £70 costs, and £200 compensation to his victim, David Frances.
Prosecutor Liz Bell told how the doorman at the Potter’s Wheel, Buckley, spoke to a female outside the pub on the night of May 24 when he was approached by Harris.
He was aggressive and was pushed back by Mr Frances.
But Harris lunged at him, tried to punch him and two others, then jumped on him while he was punched to the head a couple of times.
Steven Alis, defending, said his client’s girlfriend had asked about a taxi, the doorman had admitted swearing and Harris lost his temper.
He had been drinking heavily but that was a one off because he was normally a social drinker.
