A man has been found guilty of assault and threatening behaviour following an incident at a pub in Hereford earlier this year.
The day after the incident, the Spread Eagle in Hereford posted the following update on social media:
“So what a great weekend we had here at the Spread and we thank you all for coming in and supporting us and following the rules.
“However we had an isolated incident last night where a customer spat in the face of our manager, Charlie Allport. Charlie is my daughter and the incident has been reported, as long as I am the licensee of the Spread Eagle he will never set foot in this place again.
“As stated on many previous posts I will not tolerate any abuse to any member of the Spread Eagle staff.”
From West Mercia Police:
“A 50 year old man has been found guilty of assault and threatening behaviour following an incident at The Spread Eagle public house in Hereford on the 2nd of May this year. Rodney Evans has been ordered to pay compensation to the victim and given a 12 month community order.”
