A COURT has heard how a drunken Worcester woman was found covered in blood after she smashed the window of a city centre bar she had been thrown out of.

Amy Wadley, of Holly Mount Road, Tolladine, appeared at Worcester Magistrates Court on Friday, August 1, where she admitted smashing a glass pane in a door at Lloyds Bar in Broad Street.

Lesley Ashton, prosecuting, told the court the 28-year-old had been previously barred from the premises but was spotted by a member of staff during the evening of Sunday, July 13.

She said Wadley was asked to leave, but she was then seen in the bar again shortly after.

She was again asked to leave.

When she refused to leave again and said that they would have to call the police to remove her, the bar’s security staff were called.

Wadley was carried out of a side door at the bar, after lying on the floor, shouting and waving her arms.

“She started screaming and punching the side door,” she said. “She then picked up a chair, and began to strike at it.”

Miss Ashton said police were called after Wadley smashed a window.

She was found shortly after covered in blood because she had put her right arm through the glass.

“She said she believed she had been asked to leave for no reason and her reaction was to smash a window,” she said.

David Ollivere, defending, said that Wadley had been extremely depressed since the end of a long-term relationship at the end of last year and a number of other personal issues, and had at one point attempted to kill herself.

“She has drunk to excess and acted in a very silly fashion,” he said.

“This is a woman who is not thinking clearly.”

Ordering Wadley to pay £257.18 compensation to the bar as well as a £100 fine, £85 costs and a £20 victim surcharge, chairman of the bench Keith Stokes-Smith advised her to continue to seek psychological help for her personal problems and avoid a repeat of the incident.

“Those drinks you had that night were rather expensive,” he said. “Try and keep out of trouble and turn your life around."
