A DRUNK security guard who punched a paramedic has been given a conditional discharge by a court.
Christopher Bainton, of Toft Green, York, pleaded guilty to common assault when he appeared before York magistrates this week after an incident in the summer.
Sam Rogers, prosecuting, told the court Bainton was found laying in Beckfield Lane at just before 1am on Sunday, July 29, wearing only a pair of trousers and his shoes.
When police and paramedics arrived, they found he appeared too drunk to stand and he was placed on a stretcher in the back of an ambulance, at which point he punched the paramedic, Robert Chelton, on the side of the mouth.
