An 18-year-old who kicked a man whilst he was on the floor during a fight in Huntingdon has been ordered to complete 50 hours of unpaid work.
Jack Pollard had been at Cromwell’s bar café, in High Street, on December 12 last year when he became involved in a fight with another pub goer.
Pollard appeared at Cambridge Magistrates’ Court on February 7 where he pleaded guilty to two counts of assault.
The fight began when Pollard, of Kew Road, in Richmond, spotted the man with his arm around Pollard’s then girlfriend while “stroking her hair”.
The court heard that the man left the club and Pollard then struck him on the head.

David Potter, in mitigation, said: “Mr Pollard accepts it was he that struck the first blow. He admits he should have left it but he couldn’t. He accepts, perhaps, he needs to be more restrained and not drink to that extent.”
Pollard was also ordered to pay court costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £85.
