ON BLACK Friday a Llanelli man assaulted a bouncer, but did not even remember entering the bar where the incident took place, a court heard.Carwyn Morgans, 21, of Pendderi Road, admitted assaulting Gareth Wesley but said he could not remember doing so.Mr Wesley is a member of door staff at Revolution on Wind Street, Swansea, had been asked to eject Morgans from the bar because bar staff said he had been abusive towards them on December 21 — Black Friday.When he asked Morgans to leave, the pair started walking towards the door but he said he then felt a blow to his face which knocked him to the ground. Morgans then had to be restrained by three door staff while police arrived. He later said he had been drinking since 3pm.His previous convictions were all for assault, one caution in 2010 and two in 2011 — all from around his birthday or Christmas. Prosecutor Julie Sullivan said: "It's significant if you look at dates of these offences."

Magistrates made him subject to a community order and told him to complete 100 hours of unpaid work, and pay compensation of £150.
