Kicked hotel door window after 16 pints

Have your say

A drunken man kicked and smashed a door window after he was barred from going back into The Deeping Stage Hotel at Market Deeping.

Hotel regular Adam Manning-Coe (22) was asked to get off the dance floor due to drunkenness on May 10.

Marie Stace, prosecuting, told Spalding magistrates that Maning-Coe went outside and the door supervisor decided not to let him return.

The supervisor said Manning-Coe started to get argumentative, pushed past the doormen and kicked the bottom glass panel to the left of the door, smashing it.

Miss Stace said Manning-Coe told police he was drunk at the time and had about 16 pints of beer that night.

Manning-Coe, of Deeping St James Street, Northborough, was conditionally discharged for 12 months and ordered to pay £321.60 compensation to the hotel. He must also pay a £15 victim surcharge.

He pleaded guilty to criminal damage.

Through his solicitor, Anita Toal, Manning-Coe queried the cost of replacing the window as a friend smashed the same window a couple of years ago and paid £80.

But Miss Stace said it was specially toughened glass and the hotel had presented an invoice for £321.60.

Mrs Toal said Manning-Coe “went a little over the top” because he drank far too much.
