Man headbutted in Scunthorpe bar after months of bad feeling, court told
MONTHS of bad feeling between two men erupted into violence when one of them head-butted the other in a bar, a court heard.
Geoff Ally, 49, of High Street East, Scunthorpe, admitted assaulting Neil Kelly on October 27.
Martin Howarth, prosecuting, told North Lincolnshire Magistrates' Court that Mr Kelly, 43, was standing at the bar in the Penny Bank bar in High Street, Scunthorpe, when Ally grabbed his arm, turned him round, took a swing at his face, grabbed hold of his jacket, jumped up and head-butted him on the forehead.
A barman intervened and Ally swore at Mr Kelly, who suffered a bleeding nose.

Ally later told police he had drunk about four pints of beer and that he "fell out" with Mr Kelly about 18 months ago.
Chris Dickins, mitigating, said Ally claimed that Mr Kelly had put a note through his door and this had caused problems.
The contents of the note helped cause Ally's marriage to break down, said Mr Dickins.
Unemployed Ally was given 80 hours' unpaid work and was ordered to pay £100 compensation and £85 costs.
