3:48pm Friday 12th April 2013 in Local
A KIDDERMINSTER man who became involved in a fight with youths outside his girlfriend's flat ended up shaking hands with one of his opponents, a court heard.
Jamie Walker became upset because of the amount of mess they were creating in a communal area and it turned into a fight, said prosecutor Peter Cooke.
Punches were thrown but there were no significant injuries and it all ended with a hand-shake.
Walker, aged 28, of Dunlin Drive, Spennells, who pleaded guilty at Worcester Crown Court to affray, was given a nine-month jail sentence suspended for two years. He will be under supervison for 12 months and must undertake a six-month drug rehabilitation course. He has to pay £100 victims surcharge.
Daniel White, defending, said Walker had an awful record but had been in custody for seven weeks. He had recently become father of a young daughter and had been in a relationship for two years.
