A bouncer who threw a reveller out of a bar with such force that he crashed into a wall on the opposite side of the street has been jailed. Timothy Alan Crump, 36, was jailed after a court was shown the CCTV footage of the incident which left the victim with a dislocated elbow and a head wound.
Crump, who had been a doorman for ten years, threw the drinker from Kennedy’s bar in York city centre after he had been ‘abusive’ to staff, a court heard. During the footage, the bouncer can be seen hurling the man out of the bar before the victim crashes straight into the brick wall in front of him. Alison Whiteley, prosecuting, said the victim had been at a work Christmas party when staff told him he had to leave because the bar was closing at 3am on December 22 last year.
She said her client could not understand why a group of women at the bar were being allowed to stay. In a victim personal statement, he said the incident had ‘ruined Christmas’. His injuries had left him unable to use his arm and prevented him doing the sports and physical activity he liked. Crump, of York, North Yorkshire, denied causing actual bodily harm, but was convicted at a trial.
His solicitor Adam Henry said the victim had been drinking and was refusing to leave despite being asked to do so by several members of staff. Mr Henry said the reveller had been abusive to a colleague of Crump, so he had taken the decision to expel him.
