Jury out in trial over glass ‘attack’ at Cumbrian pub

A jury was today due to resume its deliberations in the case of a woman accused of throwing a glass at another woman during a night out and breaking her teeth.

Lisa Donna Johnson, 33, of Tomlin Avenue, Mirehouse, Whitehaven, has denied a charge of assaulting the woman and causing her actual bodily harm.

The prosecution say that she attacked Martyne Dalzell while out in Workington last October. Witness Robyn Flemming has already told the jury she had been outside with Miss Dalzell in the smoking area of the Royal Oak when Johnson walked up to them and said to the alleged victim: “What have you been saying about me?”

Miss Flemming went on to say that the defendant then threw a red coloured drink over Miss Dalzell, and then the glass, chipping her teeth.

Johnson told the court she had enjoyed a night out with friends on Saturday, October 6. Asked by her defence barrister Tim Evans what she was drinking, she replied: “Vodka, with orange cordial and lemonade.”

She said that was all she ever drank, and she never drank the reddish cider drink that was allegedly thrown. Johnson said she at no point approached Miss Dalzell and shouted at her.

Mr Evans asked her: “Did you throw a glass?”

Johnson replied: “No.” Mr Evans asked: “In particular, did you ever throw a glass into the face of Martine Dalzell?” Johnson’s reply was: “Absolutely not.”
