Drunk man jailed for Workington stamp attack

A man has been jailed for two years after he stamped on a man after drinking 16 bottles of lager.

Jonathan Brammer knocked James Wood, 25, to the ground in a Workington street before repeatedly attacking him, Carlisle Crown Court heard.

He carried out the assault after someone falsely told him that Mr Wood had threatened to cut his throat.

The 24-year-old, of Moss Bay Road, Workington, admitted assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

The court heard he had no memory of the attack because he had drunk so much and the alcohol had reacted with his anti-depressants.

The judge, Recorder Peter Davies, said Brammer was lucky that Mr Wood had only received minor injuries in the attack.
