A MAN who hurled glasses or bottles at two men during a mass brawl in a busy nightclub has been spared jail.

Charlton Allen had already admitted one count of affray.

The 30-year-old of Springfield Road, Bicester was sentenced at Oxford Crown Court today.

Outlining the case prosecutors said the brawl took place inside the Saxon pub - now known as The Lamb - in Bicester on April 28 2018.

Shortly before 2am a fight broke out, described by barristers as 'something of a melee on the dance floor' where it was 'not clear who exactly was the aggressor.'

During the brawl another man - Joseph Aristide, who has already been sentenced for his part in the violence - glassed one reveller.

As two men were moving away from the violence Allen picked up and threw what was described as 'either bottles or glasses' at them.

Prosecutors said the pub was 'relatively busy' at the time of the outburst.

Allen was jailed for 12 months, suspended for 18 months and must complete 150 hours of unpaid work and 10 rehabilitation activity requirement days. He was also banned from the pub indefinitely and must pay £450 costs and a victim surcharge.
