Spalding man involved in drunken row told to stay off booze for 90 days
A SPALDING man who attacked his partner during a drunken row has been told to stay off booze for 90 days.
Maris Dudars (32), of St Paul's Road, has to wear an electronic, alcohol-monitoring tag after he admitted assaulting his partner to Boston magistrates yesterday (Wednesday).
Dudars left his partner with bruises and a cut elbow after pushing her to the ground and kicking her on the night of Saturday, June 23.
Paul Wood, prosecuting, told magistrates that on the night in question, Dudars and his partner had both drank alcohol before an argument broke out as to whether or not she was going to leave.
Mr Wood said that the woman eventually left the flat once Dudars had gone from the room where the assault took place.
According to Mr Wood, Dudars later told police that he argued when he was drunk which resulted in him "pushing and shoving" his partner.
In a victim impact statement, Dudars' partner told police that violence was a "feature of their relationship" and that she felt "physical and moral pain" as well as "stressed".
Tony Davies, mitigating, said the incident was "not the worst assault as Dudars slapped her and she scratched him”.
Mr Davies did admit, however, that drink was a major factor in the incident.
After hearing a report the Probation Service, magistrates ordered Dudars to carry out 20 days of rehabilitation and 90 days of alcohol abstinence by wearing the electronic tag.
Dudars was also ordered to pay a total of £170 in costs and charges.
