A drunk party host bit one of his guests on the nipple after she tried to break up a brawl his dad had become involved in.
Nash Bytheway, 20, attacked Louise McDonough during a Halloween party at his home on Evans Close, Haydock , on October 29 last year.
Jiro Asafa, prosecuting, told Liverpool Magistrates鈥?Court that the attack was witnessed by neighbour Stephen Perry, who had come round to complain about the noise.
He arrived on the scene to find Nash Bytheway鈥檚 dad, Darren Bytheway, grappling with a man on the floor, and Ms McDonough trying to pull them apart.
But Nash Bytheway reacted as if Ms McDonough was attacking his dad, and grabbed her by the hair.
Miss Asafa told the court: 鈥淢r Perry saw the defendant pull the lady across the garden by her hair. He grabbed hold of her again shouting 鈥榶ou fat f****** b******?and slapped her across the face and the arm.
鈥淗e then pushed his face into her chest and bit down, hurting her nipple area.?/p>
Ms Asafa said the bite caused Ms McDonough鈥檚 nipple area to bleed and she was left sore and bruised from being slapped.
Bytheway pleaded guilty to assault. He was sentenced to eight weeks in prison, suspended for 12 months.
The court heard Bytheway was already under supervision by the Probation Service, following an earlier conviction of assault and criminal damage.
Carole Clarke, defending, said her client was suffering from depression at the time of the offence.
She said: 鈥淭he defendant accepts what he is accused of, he accepts he caused the injuries to the female. It occurred in the heat of the moment, he saw it as a way of getting the female off his father who was on the floor.?/p>
Ms Clarke said Bytheway has since 鈥済ot a grip of his problems鈥?and no longer drinks alcohol while taking depression medication.
District judge Andrew Shaw, passing sentence, said: 鈥淲ithin two months of being convicted of four assaults and criminal damage, for which you were subject of a community order, you bit (Ms McDonough), which equates to using a weapon on her.
鈥淵ou bit her to the breast area, but there is no victim personal statement and no medical evidence from her, so no evidence that she suffered further medical problems.?/p>
Judge Shaw ordered Bytheway to undergo a rehabilitation course with the Probation Service and told him to pay £120 compensation to Ms McDonough, along with £85 prosecution costs.
