Clubber bit bouncer after being refused entry

A CLUBBER bit a bouncer after she was told she could not re-enter a city centre club.

Serena Kempton, aged 35, from Alfred Street in Neath admitted assaulting Jason Evans.

He had been working at a nearby bar, before going to the Escape club on Northampton Lane to see a friend on January 19.

When he arrived he saw Kempton talking to door staff before leaving. She then tried to get back in and was told she would not be allowed so she began shouting abuse.

Mr Evans then helped restrain her, after she tried to get back inside on all fours.

When police arrived and tried to handcuff her, Mr Evans again tried to assist but Kempton bit him.

He had bruising and a graze but said he believed his thick coat stopped a more serious injury.

Kempton had no recollection of the incident, but told police she accepted her behaviour.

She pleaded guilty to assault and a public order offence.

Her solicitor, Craig Harding, told city magistrates the offence was out of character and she was not normally a violent person. She believed her drink had been spiked.

She was told to pay a total of £290 in costs, a fine and surcharge.
