A son grappled with his father and hit a woman at a Fleetwood caravan park after drinking a large amount of alcohol.

Dylan Ferguson had drunk 24 cans of lager, a number of vodkas and then went drinking a the caravan park’s bar before the brawl.

Ferguson, 19, of Scot Lane, Aspull, Wigan, pleaded guilty to assault and causing damage. He was bailed for pre-sentence reports and will be sentenced at a later date by Blackpool magistrates.

Martine Connah, prosecuting, said Ferguson was at Fleetwood’s Broadwater Caravan Park on April 12, at about 11.30pm, when he fell over, breaking the rear window of his father’s partner’s car, because he had drunk so much.

His father was angry and both dad and son started grappling. They were flailing their arms about and Ferguson twice caught his father’s girlfriend in the face.

Steven Townley, defending, said Ferguson was extremely drunk at the time.

He had had no intention of causing the damage or hitting his father’s girlfriend, but he had been reckless.
