Waterloo man in court after drunken row with partner ended with her receiving broken collar bone

Community order for Huddersfield man who pushed girlfriend

Leeds Crown Court

A woman ended up with a broken collar bone after a drunken row with her then boyfriend on New Year’s Eve.

Christopher Wilson was at the home of Ann Marie Conway in Dalton, Huddersfield on December 31 and both were drinking, Richard Davies prosecuting told Leeds Crown Court.

She described them both as very drunk and her memory of events as hazy but she recollected asking him about a music system in her home and he was explaining how it worked.

Mr Davies said: “That led to an argument between them during which he called her an idiot and she told him to shut up.

“At that point Wilson sent her to the floor and she fell against the fireplace hearth. When she got up she felt pain in her shoulder and told him to leave”.

Mr Davies said she attended hospital and was found to have a fracture to her collar bone. She was examined by a surgeon but it was decided to leave it to heal while she wore a sling.

Ben Thomas representing Wilson said since then he had made efforts to reduce his alcohol intake and had been alcohol free for several weeks.

He said Wilson had a number of medical conditions including depression and having been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2012 any prison sentence would be particularly hard for him.

Wilson, 37 of Penistone Road, Waterloo, admitted causing grievous bodily harm and was given a 12 month community order with supervision and a six month alcohol treatment programme.

Recorder Sandra Knapton said it was a “nasty and unpleasant incident” when both were under the influence of alcohol but she accepted he had not been before the court before and hoped he would not be again.
