40-year-old Briton, Adam William Fletcher, pleaded guilty to 2 counts of voluntarily causing hurt and was sentenced on 27 July to 7 weeks imprisonment.
He had attacked a stranger for no reason after being drunk, before kicking a nurse at Tan Tock Seng Hospital.
Fletcher was with another foreign national at 19 East Coast Road, drinking in the evening of 25 June last year.
They then were into a back alley to have a conversation but they then started pushing each other, with Fletcher’s friend then falling onto the ground.
The fight was then broken up by a passer-by, and Fletcher then left the alley at about 10.30pm, before heading towards Ean Kiam Place, near East Coast Road.
He saw a 57-year-old foreigner heading towards an ATM near him to withdraw money, and he then swung his fist and punched the man on the head.
the man then fell onto the ground and was knocked out, before he regained consciousness minutes later after being helped by other passers-by.
Fletcher fled the scene, but the attack was filmed by another passer-by.
The police were alerted and when they arrived at the scene, they found Fletcher drunk and behaving in a disorderly manner along Mountbatten Road.
He was then conveyed to Tan Tock Seng Hospital via an ambulance with bleeding on his elbow and scalp.
Rampage continues at hospital
He was attended to by healthcare staff at the hospital emergency department but he was drunk and wanted to fight.
A 40-year-old nurse was holding onto his leg at about 5am, so that a doctor could perform an IV drip on him, but he then started kicking out and shouting vulgarities at them, saying “get your f—— hands off me.”
Fletcher then kicked the nurse, hitting her on her left upper chest and collarbone, resulting in the nurse having to stop working and leave the emergency room because she was in pain.
The nurse was given 3 days MC.
