A Coventry man has been banned from the city's pubs, clubs and licensed premises for a year after bragging on Twitter that he had punched a man.

Karl Orman was arrested following an unprovoked attack on a 22-year-old in the S7VEN nightclub in August.

19-year-old Orman head-butted the club reveller and was detained by club staff until police arrived.

Officers discovered he had been involved in a similar unprovoked assault in June in Scholars Nightclub on a 20-year-old man.

Police found that shortly after the first attack Orman posted on Twitter that he 'threw a Judas', a slang term for punching someone in the back of the head.

He was charged with both offences and pleaded guilty at Coventry Magistrates on 11 October.

he was sentenced to a 12 month supervision order, 200 hours unpaid work, ordered to pay £100 compensation to each of the victims and £85 in court costs.

He was also given a 12 month drink banning order which will prohibit him from entering any licensed premises within Coventry city centre, as defined by the ring road.
