[A] MAN who breached a suspended jail term by head-butting a bouncer has again been spared prison.

Tony Lindsay, 30, was sentenced at Carlisle Crown Court in 2016 for a cannabis supply crime. An eight-month prison term was suspended for two years after Lindsay vowed to clean up his act.

But in the early hours of December 3 he head-butted doorman Robert Reid, who had asked him to leave Carlisle’s Cumberland Inn following an argument with another man.

Lindsay admitted an assault charge, and was brought back to the crown court today (FRI).

There was said to have been a “spike” in his alcohol consumption in December as he sought to give up cannabis. But Recorder Philip Grundy heard Lindsay, of Cant Crescent, Carlisle, was now “drug-free” and had made “significant” changes to his life.

Recorder Grundy imposed a 12-month community order for the assault. Lindsay must complete a 20-day rehabilitation requirement and pay Mr Reid £100 compensation.
