AN ENVIOUS reveller launched into a frenzied attack on two men at a Solihull nightclub, which ended in one of the victims needing hospital treatment.

Jack Johnson, 23, approached the two men in Apres nightclub on March 4, accusing one of them of looking at his girlfriend, Solihull Magistrates Court heard last Monday.

Baldev Atwal, prosecuting, said: “It was around 2am and [the two victims] were in the smoking area of the nightclub. The defendant approaches the group, directing verbal abuse at [one of the men], accusing him of looking at his girlfriend.

“Johnson slapped the victim to the face and the other complainant gets involved, who is then punched to the mouth by Johnson, causing him to fall to the floor. The complainant’s shirt and face is said to have been covered in blood and he is taken to Accident and Emergency, where he received two stitches to the inside of the bottom lip.”

Johnson, of Pembroke Way, Birmingham, pleaded guilty to two counts of assault by beating. His case was adjourned for reports on Monday and after re-appearing in court last Thursday, he received a 12 month community order and was told to carry out 200 hours’ of unpaid work.

He was also ordered to pay £575 compensation and £85 costs.

His solicitor, Julia Morgan said her client was of ‘previous good character.’
