A MAN moonlighting as a doorman alongside his partner beat a hasty retreat when his ex-partner turned up at the Accrington pub.
Blackburn magistrates heard there was a clash between the two women which resulted in the police being called and Dylan Kurt Tattersall being exposed as working without a Security Industry Authority licence.
Tattersall, 35, of Henry Street, Rishton, pleaded guilty to working as a doorman when not licensed. He was fined £166 with £350 costs and £32 victim surcharge.
There was an incident which resulted in a member of the public being ejected after she assaulted a female door supervisor. The member of the public made a complaint to the police that she had been assaulted.
“The police checked CCTV footage which did not show any offending but did show the defendant working as a door supervisor,” said Mr Lij-iyasu.
“The defendant had signed in using the licence of a bona fide security officer.”
Jonathan Taylor, defending, said Tattersall’s girlfriend was working as a door supervisor at the Warner Arms and they were short staffed.
She asked him to help and told him to sign in using the name of a registered supervisor.
“Out of misplaced loyalty he said he would help out,” said Mr Taylor.
“He is a mechanic and had no idea what was required and he never made a penny out of the enterprise.”
He said his client’s ex-partner turned up and there was a commotion with his new partner.
“At that point he thought, ‘I don’t need this’, and left,” said Mr Taylor.
“He didn’t think he was doing a great deal wrong, he was just helping out.”
