David Brown was in his room at the Wilbury House Hotel when he heard shouting coming from Paul Jay’s room and went to investigate, Ipswich Crown Court heard.

When Jay opened his door he was drunk and had shouted at Mr Brown and pushed him in the chest, said Peter Gair, prosecuting.

He had kicked Mr Brown’s ankle and told him to leave him alone and shortly afterwards he came out of his room and pushed Mr Brown in the chest down the corridor.

During the incident Jay had tripped Mr Brown over causing him to fall over and break his wrist.

Jay, 62, of Ipswich Street, Bury St Edmunds admitted inflicting grievous bodily harm on Mr Brown on January 20. He was given a two-year community order with an alcohol treatment programme.

Andrew Thompson for Jay said his client denied deliberately tripping Mr Brown over but accepted causing him to fall over.

He said that at the time of the offence Jay was feeling isolated after moving to Ipswich from Lowestoft and had been drinking.

On the day in question he had become animated and was shouting while watching football and was irritated when Mr Brown knocked at his door.
