Drunk man slapped woman on her back
11:10pm Thursday 21st June 2012 in News
A MAN from the Ronkswood area of Worcester has been ordered to pay compensation to a woman he drunkenly slapped on the back.
Ben Uren, of Ribble Close, slapped Monique Hillier-Sayers while out celebrating his birthday weekend in a city nightclub.
Liam Finch, prosecuting, said 28-year-old Uren was out drinking with friends when the incident took place at about 12.20am on Tuesday, June 5.
Miss Hillier-Sayers was on her way to the toilet when Uren slapped her on the back of the neck, causing pain to her head and the right side of her face.
Mr Finch told Worcester Magistrates Court the pair had never met before and Miss Hillier-Sayers could not see any reason for Uren to strike her.
Paul Stanley, defending, said Uren could not remember a great deal about it.
He said: “He is very sorry for doing what he did and she in no way deserved it.
“He can’t offer an explanation, save the drink and he was very foolish in what he did.”
Uren was also ordered to pay costs of £85.
