Welsh wind farm worker fined after altercation at Martlesham pub
A construction worker has been fined for behaving threateningly following an altercation at a Suffolk pub.
Mark Evans, 37, admitted using threatening words or behaviour at the Douglas Bader, in Martlesham Heath.
Evans, of Grovesend, Swansea, was working in Suffolk on an offshore wind farm contract and had gone to the pub with two other men on the afternoon of April 8.
Suffolk Magistrates’ Court heard how he left the pub for a cigarette and was followed by one of the other men.
The two were seen “getting in each other’s faces”, before Evans knocked the other man to the ground, before the third man in the group stepped in with another customer.
