A teenage restaurant worker threw a beer glass during a violent confrontation with a man in a Wetherspoon pub.

Dylan Jenkins-Drury, 18, attacked the manager of the Globe Hotel in King's Lynn after he had stepped in to try to defuse a heated argument between rival drinkers.

Norwich Magistrates’ Court was told the teen had “clearly been the aggressor” in the incident which occurred when he had visited the pub with friends on July 1.

The glass had shattered and the manager had suffered injuries, said prosecutors.

Jenkins-Drury, of Avenue Road in Hunstanton, pleaded guilty to threatening behaviour likely to cause unlawful violence. 

The court heard he had also been on electronically monitored curfew for almost 18 months awaiting sentence for affray and causing grievous bodily harm following an incident involving a group of youths in May 2022 when he was aged 16.

Magistrates sentenced him to 48 hours time already served in custody for the Lynn offence, telling him: “Someone staring at you is no reason to throw a glass. It’s just pathetic.”
