Essex teenager headbutted man in nightclub
AN ESSEX teenager who attacked a man in a Clacton nightclub on his first night back in the premises after a ban for an earlier assault was lifted has been locked up for 12 months.
Louis Frost, 19, had been banned from Fibbers nightclub after spitting in the face of a receptionist but was allowed back in March last year after staff decided to give him a second chance, Ipswich Crown Court heard.
During the evening of March 27-28, Frost had gone to Fibbers and had struck Carl Everitt-Bronze in the side of the face while he was on the dance floor, said Richard Potts, prosecuting.
He said there had been no trouble between Mr Everitt-Bronze and Frost before the attack and Mr Everitt-Bronze believed he had been butted on the side of the face rather than punched by Frost.
As a result of the attack Mr Everitt-Bronze had one of his teeth knocked out.
