A MAN has been handed a 12-week suspended sentence for pushing a fisherman into a pond in Coventry.
Unemployed Brendan Cleary was convicted at Coventry Magistrates’ Court on Monday (October 12) for the attack which happened in Swanswell Park on September 19.
The 45-year-old, of Gloucester Street in Spon End, pleaded guilty to assault and criminal damage. He was also ordered to pay £150 in compensation.
A video recording of the attack was later uploaded to YouTube and was seen tens of thousands of times online.
