Teen left trail of destruction in village pub
6:26pm Tuesday 10th September 2013 in News
A DEFFORD man left a trail of destruction in a pub after drinking six pints of alcohol.
Scott Allen, aged 18, of Hill View, admitted two charges of assault by beating, criminal damage and using threatening, abusive, insulting words or behaviour when he appeared at Worcester Magistrates Court.
Lesley Ashton prosecuting said a “serious incident of disorder” took place which started in the Royal Oak Pub, Bredon, just after 5pm on August 23.
She said Allen became aggressive to a group of male customers after the barmaid told him to clean up the mess he had made after he vomited all over the bar, floor and toilet.
“He started attacking the group swinging punches at them,” she said. “At that point the group attempted to restrain Mr Allen for a short time who then broke free from them and started to punch out at anyone who got in his way.”
She said he went on to damage lights above the snooker table in the incident which the barmaid found “entirely terrifying” as she was the only member of staff.
Miss Ashton added the disorder spilled out into the street at about 5.30pm when Allen also swung punches at villagers Bronwyn Baynes and her brother David.
In his defence, Sam Lamsdale said Allen had a number of conditions including learning disabilities, ADHD, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Asperger Syndrome and had been referred to different specialists.
“Unfortunately there’s been a lapse of anybody treating him,” she said. “His parents have been to the pub and they have paid the money to the landlord so that damage has been paid for. He is going to be re-paying his parents £10 per week.”
The case was adjourned until Friday, September 27 for reports.
Allen was released on bail on the condition he does not enter licenced premises or Main Street, Bredon.
