Guest fined for attacking Everglades Hotel bouncer
A guest who admitted assaulting a bouncer at a wedding reception in the Everglades Hotel in Londonderry has been fined £225 and ordered to pay compensation of £150.
A prosecutor told the city's magistrates court that Richard McClintock (32) from Millbrook Park in Strabane attacked the hotel's head of security who had intervened after he became aggressive to a female guest.
As the bouncer escorted drunk McClintock from the function room, he grabbed him by the throat and headbutted him.
Another bouncer came to the victim's assistance and between them they managed to restrain McClintock until the police arrived at the hotel.
