Trio sentenced after Rugby nightclub brawl spilled out into street

Rugby Editorial 3rd Apr, 2017   0

ONE man who was involved in a mass brawl in the street outside a Rugby night club has been jailed, while two more have been given suspended sentences.

Alasdair Wilcoxson, Jamal King and Benjemaine Grant-Wilcoxson had all pleaded guilty at Warwick Crown Court to a charge of affray.

Wilcoxson, 28, of Johnson Avenue, Rugby, who is also known as Kearns, was jailed for ten months after Recorder David Chinery rejected a submission his sentence could be suspended.

But King, 20, of Langdale Close, Rugby, was sentenced to eight months in prison suspended for 12 months and ordered to do 200 hours of unpaid work.




And Grant-Wilcoxson, 19 of Houston Road, Rugby, was sentenced to six months suspended for 12 months and ordered to do 100 hours of unpaid work.

Prosecutor Rebecca Wade said the incident had taken place outside the door of the Midas Lounge night club in Church Street, in November 2015.


Trouble broke out as a number of people were milling around outside the club around 4.30am.

A CCTV recording which was played in court showed an unknown man swinging a punch, and Wilcoxson playing a prominent part as the fighting spread across the street.

“All three defendants delivered blows to other people, and King delivered a blow which knocked one person unconscious,” added Miss Wade.
