Kai Brazier, 22, punched a computer screen and attacked a nurse at Colchester Hospital on November 16, 2019, Ipswich Crown Court heard. 

He claimed to have no memory of the attack - but an expert's report concluded there was no medical reason why he would not remember. 

Brazier had suffered whiplash earlier in the day after being involved in an accident while on a driving lesson. 

While awaiting a CT scan, Brazier punched a computer screen, causing it to smash, before walking off down the corridor. 

A male nurse then tried to calm him down, but Brazier punched the nurse on the top of the head, causing a large cut. 

Brazier, of Arnold Drive, Colchester, pleaded guilty to assaulting an emergency worker and criminal damage. 

He was jailed by Judge Emma Peters for 10 months.
