Carpenter punches and headbutts chip shop staff after being told he can't pay for £1.50 grub with bank card

A CARPENTER attacked three staff at a chip shop after being told he could not pay for his £1.50 bag with a bank card.

Connor Rowlands, 19, punched one man, headbutted another and assaulted a third and must now pay each of them £100 compensation.

Rowlands lost it and went behind the counter when he was told it was a minimum £5 to use his PIN card, a court heard.

Paul Hewitt, prosecuting, said: “It was a sustained attack and it was unprovoked. This is a serious case. He was drunk at the time.”

Rowlands admitted affray at the Manhattan Kitchen in Caerphilly, South Wales.

He told Recorder David Harris he had given up drinking and said: “I am ashamed of what I did. It was completely out of order.”

At Cardiff crown court Rowlands, of Caerphilly, got 11 months, suspended.

As he was being sentenced on Wednesday, Rowlands said: “I have stopped drinking.

“I am ashamed of what I did. It was completely out of order.”

The judge said to Rowlands: “You were intoxicated and you lost your temper. You became aggressive when a reasonable request was made by those serving you.”
