article imageLandlord whips out pool cue during bar brawl

By Owen Weldon     Aug 29, 2014 in Crime
Barry Birch, a pub landlord, used a pool cue to hit a top jockey and his two friends who were drinking in his establishment.
According to Daily Mail, CTV footage shows Sean Quinian, a Grand National jockey, and his two friends, Paul O'Neill and Luke Cooper, attacking Martin Reeves and Adam Smith.
The video, which is around two minutes long, shows the three punching, kicking and even throwing stools at Smith and Reeves, who are seen laying on the floor, according to Mirror.
During the fight, which occurred back in February, Birch grabbed a wooden pool cue and started to hit the three men, who eventually fled the premise.
According to 9News, the trio went to court and plead guilty to affray. Each one received a suspended sentence, which Birch described as horrendous. He said he didn't understand why the group was not locked up.
Birch continued to say that the fight was as bad as it gets, and that it was worse than anything he has ever seen. He went on to say that he has been a landlord for more than 30 years, and that it was not an average pub fight. Birch said that it was a sustained attack on two men who were laying down on the floor.
Birch's wife, who was also at the pub during the fight, said that it was an insult that the three walked away as free men. She also said that even the cops said that it was bad.
Quinian has won thousands in winnings in more than 50 races, and he is considered to be among the top 30 hunt jockeys in the nation.
