Landlord Assaulted Outside His Pub

Monday December 23 2013

We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley

A PUB landlord spent a night in hospital after being attacked by a yob outside his pub.

Darren Webster, 43, of the Black Bull, Stairfoot, suffered a cut to his eye which needed stitches after the incident last Saturday night.

"There were three youths outside and I heard a bit of an argument," Darren said. "I went to watch what was going on, just to make sure there was no trouble.

"Suddenly, one of them came up and smacked me in the face."

He said the pub rarely had any trouble and hoped the incident wouldn't put people off from coming in.

The group fled before the police arrived.

Poor Darren. There are some immature nob heads around with mental issues. Bring back public flogging. I could do with a good laugh.

It's simple direct the Judges to say any scum bag that attacks a person doing a public service job ie Landlords Taxi Driver, Bus Driver will be automatically sent to prison no right to appeal.

The rest will be flogged in public every Saturday Morning in the town centre at 10am.

Seems right thing to do for me.

Let's face it this pub is in an area where no one has told them World War 2 is over.

Sometimes I think the Americans have got it right, allowing its citizens to carry arms, what chance have people got to defend themselves..My wife live in South Africa where you could carry a fire arm...why shouldn't you be able to defend yourself?

Every time I've been past it's looks rough but hardly ever seen a police car...and as I used to work in the pub trade and drugs are very hard to control these days unless you have undercover police or security

No trouble apart from the same group of scumbags who deal drugs and carry knifes, that he allows in every weekend. Lets hope the spineless iidiot does one with his debts so the pub can get a decent manager
