Sutton Bridge woman who pushed place in pub customers face in pub admits to assault
A woman who shoved a plate into another customer’s face at a Spalding pub is to receive help with anger management issues.
Chloe Elizabeth Pooley (25), of Granville Terrace, Sutton Bridge, thought the customer concerned was mocking an autistic young person who was with her,
Boston Magistrates’ Court heard today (Wednesday).
Nick Todd, prosecuting, said that Pooley leapt up, scooped up a meal plate and put it in the woman’s face, causing her head to bang against a wall.
Having admitted to the assault, which took place at The Ivy Wall, in New Road, on March 21, at a previous hearing. Pooley today also pleaded guilty to
assaulting a mother and daughter in an incident near her home on May 15.
Speaking about the pub incident, Mr Todd said: "The victim was minding her own business with her friends, while Miss Pooley and her party were sitting nearby.
"She then took umbrage, believing that the other table was laughing at her party, and got up, went across, picked up the plate in front of the victim and put it into her face, pushing her back so she banged her head on the wall behind."
Magistrates heard how the woman targeted by Pooley was left with marks on her face and a lump on the back of her head.
Giving details about the incident in May, Pooley was said to have pulled the hair of another woman who had been staying at her home and the guest’s mum.
Beris Brickles, mitigating, said this assault had been sparked by the mother saying a "provocative comment along the lines of 'call yourself a mother?'"
Mr Brickles added that the pub incident followed an accusation of a complaint about one of Pooley’s party being "autistic in his behaviour".
"My client accepts that she has an anger issue and is seeing a doctor," Mr Brickles said.
"She has been in trouble with the police three times this year due to temper control."
Pooley was given a 12-month community order, with a requirement of 30 days of rehabilitation activity to work on anger management.
She will also be electronically tagged for three months, with a home curfew from 8pm until 6am.
In addition, Pooley was ordered to pay £50 compensation to the victim of the pub assault.
