A woman has been jailed after she attacked bar staff members in an East Cambridgeshire pub when she was refused a free Sambuca shot.
Chantelle Hughes ordered two pints and four shots at White Horse Pub in Waterbeach before she dropped one of the shots on the floor on Monday, November 5 2018.
The 24-year-old demanded she was given a free Sambuca shot but bar staff refused and told her that she had to pay.
Cambridge Crown Court heard on Friday (May 31) that Hughes flew into a rage and emptied the two pint glasses over a female member of bar staff.
Hughes then struck a male member of staff on the head with one of the empty glasses. Although it didn't smash, the impact caused bruising, swelling and a cut to his cheek.
