A single punch led a man to pay out nearly £1,000 in fines and costs.
Nicolas Simon (28) had been out in Mansfield town centre when he got into an argument with another man outside a pub, before punching him.
Mansfield magistrates was told how Simon, who is from Yorkshire, is currently working on the Tesco site at Oaktree. He had drunk between six and seven pints, and because he did not know the area, had become separated from friends.
Defending, Louisa Treharne said her client was ‘genuinely remorseful’.
The victim was not seriously injured.
Simon was fined £665 fine, told to pay £150 compensation to the victim, £85 costs and £67 victim surcharge.
