CONFUSION and frustration on a night out caused a man to attack a town warden on a night out, Boston magistrates heard on Wednesday.

Andrej Borisenkov pushed Aaron Wells so hard that it caused him to fall back into the doorway of the Bluu nightclub in Bridge Street, the bench was told.

The 25-year-old, of High Street, Boston, claimed he pushed the warden as he mistakenly thought he was a doorman who had ejected him from the club with no reason in the early hours of June 24.

He pleaded guilty to assault by beating when he appeared in court.

Phillipa Chatterton, defending, said Borisenkov, a Lithuanian national, had been out with his girlfriend and friends when he found himself taken out of the club. He tried to explain in broken English that he needed to get back into the club to get his belongings and talk to his girlfriend, but it seemed they would not listen, she added.

When Mr Wells approached him, he mistook him for the doorman and pushed him, Miss Chatterton added, saying: “You can understand the frustration he felt as he has not done anything wrong and he just wanted to get back into the club.”

He was given a conditional discharge for 12 months.
