Barred woman smashed Lloyds Bar window

A WOMAN banned from a city centre bar smashed a side window in ‘retaliation’, a court has heard.

Amy Wadley, of Holly Mount in Tolladine, reacted angrily when members of staff from Lloyds Bar in the Crown Passage asked her to leave the site.

The 28-year-old, who was previously barred, was seen on July 13 but refused to move and told the manager the police would have to be called, Worcester Magistrates Court heard last Friday (August 1).

Security ejected her from the bar by carrying her out of a side door but she continued to act aggressively and was swearing and shouting while kicking and punching the side of the door.

Wadley then picked up a chair and hit it against the side door, which caused one of the windows to smash.

Police located her in Crowngate Passage covered in blood after she put her right arm through the window, the court also heard.

Wadley pleaded guilty to criminal damage and was handed a £100 fine and ordered to pay compensation of £257.18.

Defending solicitor David Ollivere said: “Her record must of course be the starting point and with the exception of a matter in April there’s been a gap of offending for eight years.

“She’s drunk to excess this night and behaved in appalling fashion during the course of the evening.”

The defendant was also ordered to pay £85 court costs and a £20 victim surcharge.

Chair of the Bench Keith Stokes-Smith said: “It’s maybe to do with you trying to drown the issues in your life, but you could have caused yourself a very serious issue when you put your hand through the glass and cut yourself.

“Those drinks you had that night were rather expensive drinks. Try and keep out of trouble, try and turn your life around.”
