Conditional discharge for man who was provoked in pub

Sat, 23 Apr 2016


A Port St Mary man who snapped when he was provoked by his ex-girlfriend in a pub has been handed a 12-month conditional discharge. 
 
25-year-old Ziggy Matheson was sentenced at Douglas Courthouse earlier this week after previously pleading guilty to disorderly behaviour on licensed premises. 
 
The court heard he was in The Union in Castletown on the evening of February 20th when there was an altercation with the woman.
 
His advocate told the court she was "in his face" and he responded by pushing her away - he was then seen on CCTV smashing a glass off the table.
 
A charge of assault occasioning actual bodily harm was withdrawn.
