A man accused of fracturing another man’s jaw in two places, resulting in him undergoing surgery to have a plate inserted, has made his first appearance at court.
Wisdom Lee, 27, of Fishers Lane, South Shore, is charged with maliciously inflicting grievous bodily harm.
The offence is alleged to have taken place on December 27 at Blackpool.
Alison Quanbrough, prosecuting, asked for the case to be heard at crown court. Lee did not indicate a plea to the offence at that stage.
Lee was bailed to appear at Preston Crown Court on June 17 by Blackpool magistrates.
