An alcoholic lost his temper and assaulted his partner after they had both been drinking, it has been alleged.
Antoinette O’Brien was in bed at William Crump’s home in Bury St Edmunds when she allegedly heard him shouting and calling her names, Ipswich Crown Court was told.
She got out of bed and was allegedly pushed in the chest by Crump causing her to hit her head on the wall and fall to the floor.
Miss O’Brien had picked up her bag to leave and claimed she was pushed by Crump again in the kitchen causing her to hit her head on a shelf.
She was later taken to hospital by ambulance.
