Bouncer threw reveller so hard he crashed into a wall on opposite side of street

A bouncer has been jailed for 16 weeks after throwing a reveller out of a bar so hard he crashed into a wall — on the opposite side of the street.

Timothy Crump, 36, was jailed after a court was shown the CCTV footage of the incident which left the victim with a dislocated elbow and a head wound.

Crump, who had been a doorman for 10 years, launched the drinker from a city centre pub after he had been "abusive" to staff, a court heard.

Alison Whiteley, prosecuting, said the victim had been at a works Christmas party when staff told him he had to leave because the bar was closing at 3am on December 22 last year.

She said her client could not understand why a group of women at the bar were being allowed to stay.

In a victim personal statement, he said the incident had "ruined Christmas".

His injuries had left him unable to use his arm and prevented him doing the sports and physical activity he liked.

Crump, of York, North Yorkshire, denied causing actual bodily harm, but was convicted at a trial.

His solicitor Adam Henry said the victim had been drinking and was refusing to leave despite being asked to do so by several members of staff.

Mr Henry said the reveller had been abusive to a colleague of Crump, so he had taken the decision to expel him.

He told York Magistrates' Court that Crump had only shoved the victim but accepted he had used excessive force.

Crump no longer has the door supervisor job and is currently a plumber working with students, Mr Henry added.
