Bouncers sentenced after attacking rugby star Shane Williams

Three bouncers, who were filmed attacking Shane Williams and leaving his brother unconscious, walked free from Cardiff Crown Court today, receiving suspended sentences.

Dean Flowers, 32, Dave Wing, 53, and Aled James, 26, attacked as the Wales rugby star while he was out celebrating a Wales rugby win.

CCTV footage inside the Coyote Ugly nightclub shows Williams, 41, being dragged on the floor.

Flowers, of Thornhill, Cardiff, and Wing, of Grangetown, Cardiff, were found guilty of affray and given 16 month suspended sentences and 180 hours unpaid work.

James, of Ferndale, Rhondda, pleaded guilty to affray and was handed a 10 month suspended sentence and 120 hours of unpaid work.

Judge Recorder Duncan Bould told the three men: “This was a disgraceful incident of unlawful public disorder. You have acted irresponsibly with violence and aggression”.

You used unlawful violence against the very members of the public you are employed to protect.

You will never work as a doorman again.

It is a matter wholly of good fortune that no one was seriously injured.

– JUDGE RECORDER DUNCAN BOULD
