A WOMAN danced around a football club holding a bottle of wine and repeating that she knew karate before she punched one man and glassed his brother.

Chanelle Isaac, 28, was charged with inflicting GBH and assault by beating following an incident at New Quay Football Club sports club on Margaret Street in the early hours of September 30.

Mr Bowen, prosecuting, told Swansea Crown Court that two brothers had gone to drink at the club following a family meal.

At around 12.30am, the brothers decided they would leave after finishing their drinks and their game of pool.

“The defendant approached them and began to antagonise them,” Mr Bowen said.

He said Isaac was saying that the brothers “thought that they were better than everyone else” and “felt they owned the place” after they had moved out of New Quay for work.

“She stated repeatedly that she knew karate and danced around the football club with a bottle of wine in her hand,” Mr Bowen said.

She then punched one of the brothers, and hit him again before staff ordered everyone to leave. Outside, Isaac attempted to hit the same man again, but his brother intervened.

Isaac then hit the second man with her wine bottle, leaving a 2-3cm gash above his right eyebrow.

“The defendant was dragged away by members of the public,” Mr Bowen said, adding that she was taken home in a car.

Officers attended her address that day and she was arrested. Her jumper – which was covered in blood – was seized.

She admitted in interview that she had drunk three bottles of wine and had got “very drunk very quickly”. She said she had no memory of the incident.

In a statement read to the court by Mr Bowen, one of the brothers said that he “has been mocked and ridiculed” because he had been attacked by a woman.

“He feels he is not perceived as a victim of an unprovoked attack,” Mr Bowen said.

Judge Paul Thomas KC said that it was “a worrying trend” after a victim in a recent case in Llangrannog had reported a similar reaction.

Isaac, of New Quay, admitted both offences. The court heard that she had no previous convictions.

Stuart John, in mitigation, said: “The root cause of her committing this offence on this occasion is alcohol. She has abstained from alcohol since this offence, she says.”

Judge Thomas said that a pre-sentence report stated Isaac had “little victim empathy”.

“She doesn’t seem to care,” he said.

“She fully understands her behaviour was appalling and recognises it would have had an extreme effect,” Mr John said.

“She feels a deep sense of shame.”

Addressing the defendant, Judge Thomas said: “You were at a club. You had far too much to drink and as a result of that you made a complete drunken spectacle of yourself, lost your dignity and lost all control.

“You need to get a grip of yourself.”

He sentenced Isaac to eight months, suspended for 18 months. She must complete a 120-day alcohol abstinence and monitoring requirement, 150 hours of unpaid work and 30 rehabilitation activity requirement days.
