An engineer who got involved in a confrontation with a female bouncer outside a Warsop pub has been ordered to pay out £345.

Carl Haslam (31) of Egmanton Road, Meden Vale, got into an argument while 
drunk with the door supervisor member at the Talbot pub.

Mansfield Magistrates’ Court heard how Haslam had been heavily drink after downing pints of beer, cocktails and Jagerbombs.

But his mood turned when he saw his ex-partner in the pub which led to the intervention of the door staff.

The court was told how Haslam became aggressive and he punched her on the shoulder.

A second man then tried to intervene to calm Haslam down, but he became abusive towards the innocent bystander.

The court was then told how Haslam slapped the man twice to the cheek with his palm.

Haslam was later arrested and questioned by police and said he could not remember the incidents because he had been drunk.

CCTV footage played to the court showed Haslam swaying and lashing out at the two victims.

He admitted two counts of common assault.

In mitigation, it was heard how Haslam had turned angry because he saw his ex partner in the pub and claimed she had recently denied him access to their 15-week-old baby.

He also wanted to know who was looking after the baby while she was in the pub.

He was fined £140, made to pay £50 compensation to each, and pay £85 costs and a £20 surcharge.
