A YOUNG woman returned to a pub she was thrown out of and punched the bouncer on his face.
Danielle Mary Jones also spat on doorman Michael Robbins as midnight struck on New Year’s Eve, Wrexham magistrates heard.
Jones, 18, of Maes Eithen, Brynteg, admitted assaulting Mr Robbins on December 31 outside the Old Swan Inn, Abbot Street, Wrexham.
Justin Espie, prosecuting, said Jones had been in the Old Swan at about 11pm with three others, when the group were involved in a disturbance in the toilet area of the pub.
Door supervisor Mr Robbins made his way over to the group and asked them to leave.
But Jones later made her way back to the pub and saw Mr Robbins in the alleyway outside at about midnight.
Her asked her to leave again, and she punched him in the jaw.
Mr Robbins tried to usher her away, and she fell over.
While helping her up, she spat on his jacket, and tried to spit on him a second time.
“Although he was not injured he was stunned and annoyed by the spitting,” Mr Espie said.
Andy Holliday, defending said: “It happened just on the stroke of midnight, it was not a good way to usher in the new year at all.”
He said Jones fully accepted her behaviour was unacceptable but her recollection of the night was vague.
A few days after she went to the pub to apologise to Mr Robbins. Magistrates gave Jones a 12-month conditional discharge. She was ordered to pay £50 compensation to Mr Robbins, £85 in costs and a £15 victim surcharge.
