A MAN who attacked and injured door staff with kicks and punches to their faces at an Isle of Wight pub, will learn his fate when sentenced this summer.

Cameron Younie, 19, of Westfield Park, Ryde, admitted at an earlier hearing, two counts of assault by beating, in Newport, on February 4.

The Crown Prosecution Service accepted the basis of Younie's pleas, that the attacks launched were reckless, after reviewing CCTV footage of the incident.

During the early hours, in the Hogshead pub in Newport High Street, Younie was being separated, by a member of door staff, from another man he was having 'an altercation' with, said Lauren Stone, prosecuting, at the Isle of Wight Magistrates' Court.

As the security officer got in between the men, he and Younie ended up on the pub floor, which resulted in Younie kicking him in the face "with considerable force".

Then, as the incident continued, Younie threw a punch at another man, but struck the face of another member of door staff, which caused bruising to her face, Miss Stone added.

Younie was serving a year-long probation order for drug driving.

For Younie, Michael McGoldrick said his client's actions were as a result of his medication for ADHD "not agreeing with him", coupled with binge drinking.

Mr McGoldrick said Younie had mistakenly believed his friend was being attacked, not realising it was a member of door staff trying to restrain him, and went to his aid.

Younie is now seeking help for his binge drinking issues, the court was told.

Magistrates ordered a report on Younie before sentencing on July 5.
