A woman who threw a stiletto shoe at a staff member injuring her when asked to leave a Dewsbury pub, has been given a suspended jail sentence.
Leeds Crown Court heard today Adele Day had already been warned about her “rowdy” behaviour in drink in the Babes in the Wood on April 26 last year.
About midnight when last orders were called she was asked to leave by Annaliese Falconer who was working behind the bar, but refused to go and became aggressive, said Christopher Dunn prosecuting.
Day then threw a glass towards her which missed but smashed on a beer pump before Miss Falconer saw a black object flying at her and felt a sharp pain which caused her to faint.
Mr Dunn said she had been struck by one of Day’s shoes. A short time later Day was seen outside with both of her shoes one with a broken heel. She denied any assault when later seen by police and claimed to have been wearing flip flops that night.
Her victim was treated in hospital for concussion and was also found to have “mild traumatic brain injury” from which she still suffers headaches.
Marcus Waite, representing Day, said as a result of the incident she had now given up drinking completely. She was the sole carer for her young son and was again pregnant.
Day, 26 of Thirlmere Drive, Tingley, Leeds admitted causing grievous bodily harm and was given a 16 month prison sentence suspended for two years with a 50 day activity requirement and 150 hours unpaid work.
Recorder Kate Tulk said although the offence happened towards the end of a suspended jail term for a similar offence she appeared to have stayed out of trouble since April last year and was needed by those around her.
