Man pleads guilty to glass attack

A CHINDERAH man who smashed a schooner glass into another man's face during a pub brawl will face the Lismore Local Court on August 5.

Jamie Ian Halloran, 36, was drinking with mates at the Chinderah Tavern in December last year.

Halloran's alleged victim was also enjoying a drink with his father and other friends when one of the group recognised one of Halloran's mates, who had allegedly given one of their friends 'the finger'.

The evening wore on and when Halloran was left alone, the victim and his father approached him, asking where the person who had given their mate the finger had gone.

Halloran stood up and smashed the glass he was holding into the victim's face.

A brawl broke out between the three men and ended with the arrival of police and ambulance officers a short time later.

The victim was taken to hospital for treatment to cuts on his face, allegedly caused in the attack with Halloran's glass.

Halloran has pleaded guilty to the charges and will be sentenced when he appears in the Lismore Local Court on August 5.
