Sentencing options are 'open' in pub fight case

Five men have appeared before Deputy High Bailiff Alastair Montgomerie in connection with a fight in a Peel pub.

Jason Wearnouth, aged 26, of Darragh Passage in Douglas, and Calum William Morrisey, also 26, of Alberta Drive in Onchan, pleaded not guilty and were bailed until October 15 for a trial date to be fixed.

Andrew Woodbridger, 47, of Y Vaarney Yiarg in Castletown, 28 year-old Galis Fridribson, of Marine Parade in Peel, and 27 year-old Craig Andrew Woodbridge, of Reart Aalin, admitted using unlawful violence.

The court heard the incident happened in the Peveril Hotel on May 28.

Justin Bullace, prosecuting, said the fight broke out at 8.45pm and police were called.

One man was punched on the side of his head and Woodbridge senior said he hit him because he thought he was attacking his son.

Mr Montgomerie bailed the trio to October 29, and said he would watch the CCTV footage from the pub.

He warned the men he was keeping his sentencing options open.
