Banned from Notts after Oceana brawl

A man has been banned from Nottingham city centre after breaking a man’s jaw in Oceana.

A man has been banned from Nottingham city centre – and ordered to pay a £2,000 fine – after a drunken brawl in Oceana.

The man was charged for punching a man in the face when he appeared in Nottingham Crown Court yesterday.

The scene of the crime

He was given a 14-month prison sentence, suspended for two years and banned from Nottingham city centre at weekends, following his attack on Jeff Davis, which involved breaking his jaw, last May.

“The courts are absolutely sick of senseless and drunken violence, which occurs on Friday and Saturday nights in this city so regularly,” said judge Jonathan Teare.

Issuing a warning to other drunken clubbers, he added, “If you go into Nottingham city centre on Friday or Saturday night you can be sure, as night follows day, that 14 months will be imposed.”

The man, who had previously been convicted for affray and possessing an offensive weapon, pleaded guilty.
