A DRUNKEN man hurled a woman to the floor after she confronted him over his behaviour towards his mother.

Jordan Hampson’s victim was so frightened after he pushed her to the ground she ran and hid under a duvet.

Hampson, 23, of Mornington Road, Lytham, pleaded guilty to assault at Blackpool Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.

Martine Connah, prosecuting, told the court the victim’s brother was going out with Hampson’s mother, and the victim visited them at an address on Marsden Street, Blackpool, on December 23 last year.

Hampson, who the victim did not know, arrived and became aggressive towards his mother.

He was taken outside to calm down and the woman said he should not speak to his mother that way, at which point he grabbed her shoulders and threw her across a path, throwing her down again after she got up and leaving her with grazes to her hip, elbow and hand.

Steven Townley, defending, said: “He returned home heavily intoxicated and started arguing with his mum. The complainant came out and got involved and he pushed her out of the way.”

Hampson was sentenced to 18 weeks’ imprisonment, suspended for 24 months, two years supervision and ordered to pay £100 compensation and a £100 victims’ surcharge.
