Llandudno....Man left bleeding from head after being hit by table at King’s Arms pub!

 It's all happening in Llandudno these days! 
A MAN from Llandudno who left another person unconscious and bleeding from his head after a fight in a pub in the town has been jailed.

Aaron Whittley, 36, of Ewloe Drive, was sentenced to five years’ imprisonment at Mold Crown Court today (May 30).

He was convicted after trial in March of wounding with intent. Prosecuting, Jemma Gordon told the court that, on March 13, 2022, an argument broke out between Whittley and other males at the King’s Arms pub, on Mostyn Street.

A woman at the pub tried to “calm him down” but after being unable to, her husband, Craig Bisby, also became involved.

The incident then “escalated” when Whittley threw a table at Mr Bisby, hitting him to the head and causing him to fall to the floor.

Whittley then struck Mr Bisby twice to the head with a bar stool, causing blood to “pour from his head” and a loss of consciousness.

The defendant continued throwing glasses in the pub while others tended to Mr Bisby.

Mr Bisby, who suffered three head wounds, said he is now self-conscious when having his hair cut due to visible scars inflicted from the incident.

He was hospitalised for a period of time afterwards, took a number of days off work, and for the first year after the incident, he and his wife “tended to socialize only at friends’ houses”.

Defending Whittley, who had 19 previous convictions for 32 offenses, Simon Rogers said his client has “remained out of trouble” in the two years and two months since this incident.

Whittley hopes to regain employment as a roofer upon his release from prison and “have some stability in his life,” Mr Rogers added.

He now feels “remorse” for his behaviour, and was said to have two teenage children with his partner of 21 years.

Mr Rogers said: “There is no doubt that this prison sentence will perhaps be felt hardest by them.”

Sentencing, Judge Rhys Rowlands labeled the incident a “drunken and unprovoked attack”.

“You were plainly looking for trouble,” Judge Rowlands told Whittley.

“He (Mr Bisby) and you are fortunate that the injuries weren’t any more serious.”Whittley was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge. From.....https://www.northwalespioneer.co.uk/news/24354865.man-left-bleeding-head-hit-table-llandudno-pub/
