Woman, 25, caught on CCTV smashing bottle over bouncer's head as he breaks up fight outside city centre bar
This is the shocking moment a woman bottles a doorman, leaving him with blood gushing out of the back of his head. But 25-year-old Sophie Robson got away with just a GBP170 fine after admitting carrying out the vicious attack. CCTV cameras outside The Harbour Bar, in Waterloo, capture the moment violence erupts between a group of women, The Liverpool Echo reports.

Young Tory women in pub scuffle after one poured wine over the other Mr Bond continues to try his best to diffuse the situation despite the fact he is bleeding heavily from the wound. Mr Bond, who now works for a day-time security company and runs a kickboxing gym told the Echo: "In a situation like that as a doorman, you have to be calm and let things slide.
It is about calming and diffusing a situation." He said his background in kickboxing helps him be "controlled and disciplined" in such situations. Mr Bond was found to be totally justified in his actions by the authorities in relation to the incident.
He added: "This incident did put a lot of pressure on me at the time. "I was the one who was attacked while I was at work and I have stopped nightclub work now, because I don't really want to put up with that."(Image: Liverpool Echo WS)(Image: Liverpool Echo WS)
Teen searching for kind stranger who paid his Valentine's restaurant bill 'because he looked like his dead son' Robson, of Litherland, appeared at South Sefton Magistrates' Court two weeks ago over the incident and was handed 300 hours of community service and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of GBP85 and costs of GBP85.
Mr Bond, who is both a trained fire warden and qualified in health and safety, said he was "angry" at the fine handed to Robson and said he believed he would "probably be in prison if it was the other way round". He was treated for injuries to his nose and head after the attack. After the sentence, he added: "I was shocked and disappointed."(Image: Liverpool Echo WS)
