A 29-YEAR-OLD Mold woman threw a pool ball in a nightspot which hit another young woman near her eye.
Christine Jones, of Bridge Street, had been staying in a Llandudno hotel with her boyfriend but after drinking had become violent, said James Neary, prosecuting in Llandudno magistrates Court.
Her victim went to Glan Clwyd Hospital in Bodelwuddan with a swelling near her eye and a scratched arm, but had to wait before she could be treated and so went home.
Jones pleaded guilty to common assault last March on Narrriat Bunle in the 147 Club at Llandudno and also on doorman Jason David Jones.
She received a suspended prison sentence.
Mr Neary said it had been alleged that Jones “was looking as if she was trying to punch everyone in sight”.
The doorman had been kicked and punched on the jaw and right eye but eventually Jones and her partner were manhandled out of the club.
Doorman Mr Jones also went to A&E for a split left ear.
Both defendant Jones and her partner were arrested.
Mr Neary said it had been fortunate that Miss Bunle had been looking away when the pool ball struck, otherwise her injury might have been more serious.
Gareth Parry, defending, said Jones was on her first night out in five years and what had happened was completely out of character.
“She’s a carer for vulnerable people,” he said.
“She was deeply mortified when she saw the CCTV footage.”
Jones was a hard working single mother and he handed testimonials to the magistrates.
“She would like me to apologise to Mr Jones and the young lady,” Mr Parry added.
Chairman of the magistrates’ bench Len Jones told her that what she had done was serious, using both a pool ball and her feet as a weapon.
She was given a suspended 12- week prison sentence and placed on a community order, which will involve courses on managing aggression and will carry out 150 hours unpaid work.
In addition she must pay £100 compensation each to her two victims and £165 in costs – a total of £365.
