A drunken thug threw a table and a bar stool at a pub customer. Aaron Whitley was convicted of wounding him during the incident in Llandudno.

The 36-year-old had been drinking in the Kings Arms in Mostyn Street on March 30, 2022 and had been "looking for trouble" that evening, Mold Crown Court heard.

There was pushing and shoving between customers at the premises and things escalated. The defendant threw a table at a Craig Bisby, hitting him on the head. He fell to the floor.

Then Whitley hit him twice with a bar stool. Blood pouring from his head, Mr Bisby lost consciousness, the court heard.

Whitley, of Ewloe Drive, Llandudno, then threw glasses and left the pub. The victim sustained three head wounds which needed "stitching and glueing", the court heard.

In a statement Mr Bisby said he suffered pain and headaches and had to take time off work. He is cautious about going on nights out and feels self-conscious about his scars.

Simon Rogers, defending, said his client is remorseful. The judge His Honour Rhys Rowlands told Whitley he had been looking for trouble.

It had been a "drunken and unprovoked attack". He jailed him for five years for wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
