This is the shocking moment a rowdy reveller slaps a female bouncer and scales a taxi in a wild brawl with doormen.
Footage shows her colleagues chase after the drinker as he runs from the scene and even climbs a taxi to evade them – before getting hurled onto the pavement and dramatically detained.
The incident happened at around midnight on Saturday June 12 outside the New Union Hotel & Showbar in a corner of the city’s Gay Village area.
Greater Manchester Police have said a man, Christian St Hilaire, 30, was arrested at the scene.
St Hilaire has since pleaded guilty to common assault, criminal damage, and assault by beating. He was sentenced to 10 weeks imprisonment for each offence, to run at the same time.
At the start of the video, the rowdy drinker can be seen verbally abusing multiple security staff outside the bar.
The individual who filmed the footage said they did not know how the altercation erupted.
As a friend tries to hold back the reveller, he can heard screaming: ‘Shut your mouth!’
The man then starts pointing his fingers at a male bouncer’s face when a female colleague come to his aid and pushes the drinker’s hands away.
The female bouncer confronts the reveller saying: ‘Hey stop! What the f*** are you going to do? Move!’
But the man replies: ‘Move? You move,’ before slapping her across the face.
The bouncer’s co-workers then rush to her defence as the reveller is seen fleeing from the scene pursued by other bouncers.
The group of staff give a dramatic chase between cars and obstacles on the busy street with shouts coming from onlookers.
In another clip the man is seen climbing on top of a parked silver taxi in an attempt to evade them.
Two security staff then grab on to his legs and forcibly pull him to the pavement as more staff arrive to restrain him.
In a final clip, police officers are filmed attending the scene.
A Greater Manchester Police spokesperson said: ‘Police were called shortly after 11.50pm on Saturday 12 June to a report of a man being aggressive towards door staff outside the New Union Hotel on Princess Street, Manchester.
‘Christian St Hilaire, 30, of Nottingham, was detained and later taken to custody by officers.
‘He was subsequently charged with single counts of section 39 assault and battery, and appeared at Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court on Monday 14 June.’
