TWO brothers fell out after going to a wedding, a court was told.

Richard Matthews told a court his brother objected to him being asleep and then attacked him.

Matthews, 44, who works as a carer, of Mayfield Road, St Annes, admitted breach of the peace.

He was bound over in the sum of £100 for six months by Blackpool magistrates.

Adrian Hollamby, prosecuting, said that on December 16 at about 2.45am the defendant’s brother and his girlfriend arrived home in St Annes.

The brother said he did not want Matthews in the house because he thought he was drunk.

The court was told there was a struggle and Matthews was thrown out of the address, where there were children.

He continued shouting outside and was arrested by police.

Matthews said he had been to the wedding and had just four drinks.

He said that his brother came home and shouted at him for being asleep, then attacked him.

Matthews added that he was knocked unconscious for some time and remembered waking up in handcuffs.
