A LATE-night reveller has been handed a conditional discharge after admitting smashing the window of an Ipswich bar following a night out.

South East Suffolk Magistrates' Court heard that Roman Pajak, 23, of Hatfield Road, Ipswich, was asked to leave Ollie's Bar, in Tacket Street, Ipswich, at about 1am on May 11.

Emma Lister, prosecuting, said Pajak was seen arguing with his sister outside with her punching him in the body and face before “pushing him away” towards Upper Brook Street.

Door staff then heard a loud thud and realised a 5ft by two-and-a-half foot window had been cracked.

Miss Lister said: “The defendant was asked if he smashed the window and he replied 'yeah, and what?'

“He was interviewed and stated that he was very drunk and couldn't remember anything about being at Ollie's Bar.”

Miss Lister said an estimated £300 damage had been caused as a result of the incident.

Pajak, who was not represented in court, said: “There's nothing I can say at all really.

“I would like to say I'm sorry.”

Chairman of the magistrates, David Brennan, said: “In view of the fact this is your first offence we will give you a conditional discharge for 12 months.”

Pajak was ordered to pay compensation of £200 and costs of £60.
