Intoxicated brothers punch medic, claim beer was poisoned
They were verbally abusive to a female paramedic and punched her male colleague in the groin after calling for an ambulance, saying their lager had been spiked
WITHINGTON, England — Two boozy brothers who punched a paramedic in a drunken attack blamed 'poisoned beer' for the shameful incident.
Michael, 53, and Anthony Donnelly, 52, dialled 999 claiming their lager had been spiked at a pub in Withington. Three ambulance staff raced to the Wilmslow Road venue at 4am and found the pair ‘significantly intoxicated’ but otherwise unharmed, a court heard.
Both men were then verbally abusive to a female paramedic. And when her male colleague squatted down to reason with the brothers, Michael Donnelly punched him in the groin, winding him.
