Man jailed for drunken attack on fellow holidaymaker
A MAN has been jailed after admitting to a drunken attack on a fellow holidaymaker.
Terry Fletcher had been on a 12-hour drinking binge with his younger brother Anthony before carrying out the attack at the Butlins holiday complex at Ingoldmells.
Abigail Joyce, prosecuting, told Lincoln Crown Court that the brothers became involved in an altercation with two couples in the early hours as they made their way back to their apartments.
One of the brothers made a derogatory comment to one of the women in the other group and moments later Anthony Fletcher assaulted Scott Pley who suffered a blow to the head which knocked him to the ground. He was then punched and kicked to the body.

Terry Fletcher then repeatedly kicked a second man Stephen Harrop to the head and body before security staff intervened and detained the brothers.
Mr Harrop suffered two black eyes and lost four teeth.
Miss Joyce said: “The staff who detained the brothers described them as being like wild animals.”
Terry Fletcher, 30, of Short Street, Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, admitted assaulting Mr Harrop causing him actual bodily harm on April 1, last year. He was jailed for 12 months.
Anthony Fletcher, 22, of the same address, admitted assaulting Scott Pley causing him actual bodily harm. He was given a 16-week jail sentence suspended for 12 months with 180 hours of unpaid work.
Terry Boston, for Terry Fletcher, said: “ He apologises whole heartedly for what happened.”
Daniel Thomas, for Anthony Fletcher, said he had never been in trouble before.
“He got involved in an unprovoked attack while in drink with his brother. They had been on a 12 hour drinking session while on their holidays.”
