Three arrested after drunken brawl


THREE men were arrested in the early hours of the morning after a drunken brawl outside a Bridge Street bar, Warrington Crown Court was told.
Daniel Keenan, Philip Woodrow and Raymond Donnelly began fighting outside McCauley’s Bar after an earlier argument inside the premises.
All three admitted public order offences.
Woodrow, of Roughley Avenue, Sankey Bridges, was placed under a 7pm-7am curfew for six months.
Keenan, of St Elphin’s Close, and Donnelly, of Rolleston Street, Warrington, were both ordered to complete 180 hours unpaid work and pay £200 costs.
Debra White, prosecuting, said Woodrow and Donnelly were by the entrance to the bar talking to the doormen when Keenan exited the premises, punching Woodrow’s brother as he left.
Donnelly and Woodrow then both punched Keenan. But the parties had separated by the time police arrived and arrested all three.
Woodrow admitted being drunk and throwing punches at Keenan, while Donnelly said there had been an argument inside and that he was disgusted with himself for his actions.
Keenan said he had been attacked inside the bar and that the people responsible for the incident were waiting for him outside.
Defence counsel said Keenan was injured in the incident inside the bar. Woodrow got involved because his brother had been attacked and Donnelly was ashamed of his part in the incident.
Recorder Searle told the defendants: “I take the view that all three of you should be thoroughly ashamed of yourselves. This community is sick and tired of this childish, loutish, behaviour.”
