A DRUNK who attacked a man in the street after they both left a Soham pub was given a six-month electronic curfew order this week.
Ricky Attlesey punched Jeremy Daniels several times, leaving him with a bloody nose and a swollen face.
The incident started when Attlesey was abusive towards Mr Daniels inside the hostelry, and told him: "You are going to get it; I am going to do you."
Mr Daniels left the pub and visited a nearby shop - and came outside to find Attlesey with a smug look on his face.

"He told him to put his shopping down, and said "You are going to get it," prosecutor Laura Mardell told Ely magistrates.
"He walked up to his victim, and punched him to the left side of the face with a clenched fist. The complainant received several more punches to the face."

Mr Daniels asked why he was being attacked, but received no response, said Miss Mardell.
"The defendant continued to punch him, then stopped and walked away." Mr Daniels suffered a bleeding nose, his left eye and jaw were red and swollen, and he suffered a black eye.
Representing himself in court, Attlesey, 45, of High Street, Soham, admitted assault, but said: "I cannot remember anything, I was drunk. I just don't recall it."
On behalf of the probation service, Maxine Bailey said Attlesey was not ready to address his potential alcohol problem, and might lose his job if he was asked to carry out unpaid work.
"Drinking underlies his offending behaviour," she said. "A curfew would restrict his liberty and his access to alcohol, and give him time to think about his alcohol use."
Attlesey was ordered to stay indoors every night between 7.30pm and 6am, and must pay �75 compensation to Mr Daniels, and �60 court costs.
