Outram pleaded guilty to common assault, affray and criminal damage after the incident on August 7, 2020.

The court did not outline the details of the dispute during the June 9 hearing.

Outram also admitted a further common assault later in the day on August 7, 2020, on a man at the Darton Tap public house in Barnsley and he also admitted assault occasioning actual bodily harm on a further man who had tried to intervene and suffered bruising and a cut above his eye.

Outram was sentenced to nine months of custody suspended for 18 months on June 4 for the matters from the first incident.

And after Recorder Jeremy Barnett considered the charges from the second incident he imposed a further 6 months of custody suspended for 18 months during the June 9 hearing, but stressed this would be served concurrently and this would not alter the overall length of the previously imposed sentence.
