A BINSTEAD man broke another man's nose after he pushed him into a wall at Fever nightclub.

Shay Dixon, 20, of Maybrick Road, appeared at the Isle of Wight Magistrates' Court on Christmas Eve, where he admitted assault occasioning grievous bodily harm.

The court heard Dixon had attended the Newport venue on September 29, when he saw someone he recognised as having been abusive to his father at a football match.

Prosecutor, Vivian Ducie, said: "When he spotted the young man at the club he went over and confronted him.

"The victim suffered breaks to the cartilage in his nose as well as some minor head injuries.

"The fight came about after there had been some interaction between the aggrieved and Mr Dixon's father.

"As a result, the aggrieved gentleman was knocked unconscious and was unable to remember anything about the incident."

Dixon's defence, Barry Arnett, said: "The key witness is actually the partner of the victim in this matter, who she saw him be flung into a wall.

"Mr Dixon tells me he pushed him with both hands to the shoulders, but had no intention of actually causing him any injuries.

"He had recognised him as someone who had become abusive towards his father at a football match. The red mist just came over him."

"The next day he called police himself with no prompting and asked if they wanted to speak to him.

Sentencing was adjourned to the IW Crown Court on January 27.
