A man who lost his temper after drinking a bottle of vodka, headbutted a wall at a Machynlleth home, leaving him with blood streaming down his face.

Kalraj Singh Gill, 30, pleaded guilty to criminal damage and threatening behaviour when he appeared at Welshpool Magistrates' Court on Tuesday, February 23.

The court heard that Gill "smashed his head" against kitchen cupboards, worktops, a fridge freezer and an interior wall causing a hole and blood splatter inside after losing his temper with another man at a property in Machynlleth.

Helen Tench, prosecuting, said police officers were called to a disturbance outside a residential estate in the town at around 1am on December 19.

Body worn camera footage showed Gill had blood running down his face, and was behaving "aggressively", throwing punches, grabbing and pushing a man in the middle of the road.

The court heard that Gill told officers during an interview that he "couldn't remember anything" after drinking a bottle of vodka on the train. Mrs Tench said that on an intoxication scale of one to 10, with one being the lowest, Gill told officers that he was "15".

Robert Hanratty, defending, said Gill "obviously had too much to drink" and took his frustration by headbutting the wall causing "significant damage" to his head. Mr Hanratty added that Gill had been drinking because he was "so upset with his cousin".

Chair of the magistrates bench Stephen Pembroke said they were "foolish acts" and a "very silly thing to do".

He told Gill: "We hope you have learnt something from your alcohol courses last year but we're not sure that you have."

Gill, of Plas Edwards, Tywyn, was ordered to pay £150 in compensation to Barcud Housing Association, £85 costs, £80 fine and a £34 victim surcharge.
