A Portadown man who head-butted another man in a bar was fined £300 last Wednesday at Craigavon Magistrates Court for unlawful assault.

Wesley Alexander Hunniford (23), Huntingdale Lodge, Portadown, was also ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy.

The court heard that the assault happened on August 16 last year and the injured party suffered a cut nose and swollen eye.

A solicitor for Hunniford said he accepted there was alcohol on board. He explained there had been an incident earlier in the bar and some verbal abuse. Hunniford went to square up to this man and struck him with his head.
