A KICKBOXER who was “dragged into a row” on his brother’s birthday accidentally hit a party-goer in the face with a glass, a court has heard.

Alex Hincks, of Footners Lane in Burton, has been barred from Bournemouth nightspot Bar So following the incident, which took place in early May.

Bournemouth Magistrates’ Court heard that the 27-year-old struck a stranger with a glass from a distance of three or four feet after bouncers asked the party to leave.

Prosecuting, Alison Saunders said the defendant was with a group of males, who had become involved in a “heated argument” with a second gathering of older men.

“[At the time he threw the glass] he was forceful and purposeful,” she said.

However, Jonathan Morrissey, mitigating, said the defendant – who currently works on film sets at Shepperton Studios – was “remorseful almost as quickly as the incident took place”.

“He enjoys fitness training and Thai kickboxing,” he said.

“If he had seriously wanted to injure somebody, he would have been able to do so.”

He said Hincks, who was “in drink” at the time, intended to throw his drink on to the floor after being told to leave.

“He was reckless as to whether or not that drink would hit somebody,” he said.

The injured party, who sustained a cut close to his eye, did not make a complaint, and so the defendant was charged with using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour with the intent to cause fear of or provoke unlawful violence. He was sentenced to a 12-month community order and barred from the nightclub for 12 months.

What a pathetic excuse, it dosent matter what job lifestyle you have it does not give you the right to act like this in a pub. He wants to grow up and learn to drink in a sensible manner, or dont drink at all. !!

The fact that this bloke enjoys kickboxing as a hobby has no relevance to his actions or this report in general.

Not really a story beyond your average bar altercation. The only interesting line was

"The injured party, who sustained a cut close to his eye, did not make a complaint"

I read that as: he'd started the fight that he subsequently lost. Not quite sure why kickboxing was mentioned.

'Kickboxer'? I know that there are some strange occupations these days, the usual one is 'Personal Trainer'. I think I will call myself a 'Personal Lifestyle Pundit' next time I am dragged up before the Beak, or am I too late for that one?
