- Mr Carter you said a few minutes ago that you don't go round hitting people. Is that

- But this isn't the first time you are in court is it?
- This isn't the first time you've been in serious trouble is it?

- There was an incident wasn't there on the 19th of March 2014?
- and it happened at a public place isn't it?
- You just wanted to go home.
- And you've been spoken to by the police officer is that correct?

- You took objection to the way he was talking to you
- The police man didn't attack you, did he?
- So because he was speaking to you you got upset and annoyed didn 't you?
- And you decided to punch him in the face.
- So you think that violence is justified when someone acts in a way that annoys you.
- So if you find yourself in a situation where you 're in danger of losing your temper you
are in a real risk to those around you. Is that correct?

- You also were a real risk to the railway man weren't you?
- He annoyed you.

- He didn't physically attack you.
- But you lost it.
- And you assaulted him as well.

- On the incident we are concerned today, it was late wasn 't it?
- And you were in a public place.
- And you just wanted to get home.
- And you've been spoken by Jonathan Shaw.
- And he clicked his finger at you.
- And that got you upset and annoyed
- And you decided to punch him in the face.


- Mr Carter a few minutes ago you said that during the altercation, you had your back
towards the front door.

- And you also said you had your hand on the door.
- That is less than one metre between you and the door isn 't it?
- There was no space for you to take a step back.
- And yet you say that when he came onto you, you stepped backwards.
- That is not what happened is it.
- He came on to you.
- And you punched him.
