London, Nov 11 (ANI): A stark naked stripper in Britain is said to have attacked a pub landlord and his wife with a stiletto-heeled shoe after she was accused of being drunk on the job.
Holly Jaswal, 23, knocked out landlady Toni O'Brien and left her husband David bleeding from one eye, and staff had to wrestle her to the ground and hold her until police arrived at the Crown pub in Knaphill, Surrey.
"I nearly lost the sight of an eye. This whole incident cost me my business. It shattered my confidence. It affected my wife the same way," the Daily Mail quoted David as telling the jury.
The court heard that during the brawl Jaswal called O'Brien a "pervert" and a "paedophile", and that she told his wife, it's no wonder her husband flirts with other girls, looking at the state she's in.
Jaswal, from Brighton, East Sussex, has denied two charges of assault causing actual bodily harm, and has insisted she struck and injured the married couple in self-defence.
"Put simply, Ms Jaswal took umbrage at being accused of being drunk," Ruby Selva, prosecuting, said.
The court was told that during her police interview Jaswal said the couple had attacked her and she had lashed out with her shoe to defend herself.
O'Brien, 43, told the court that when confronted about her drinking on the night of the incident, Jaswal had said, "I'm not f***ing drunk."
"There was a slight slurring of words. It was said in an aggressive nature. I told her I would contact the agency and not have her on the premises any more," he said.
He said he then felt a searing pain as he was struck in the eye, and he restrained her, as he did not want to be hit again.
The Woking Borough Council revoked the pub's licence, and it has now gone out of business.
Michael Hillman, defending, told the court that the pub's closure had followed complaints of noisy music, and acts of rowdiness and criminal damage by punters, which had kept the neighbours awake. (ANI)
