But then, on Christmas Eve, the family was at Central Bar - the former British Legion bar - in Truro and at first all seemed well. CCTV showed Mitchell and the victim hugging and shaking hands before something is said and Mitchell unloads a series of punches before being restrained by police and other revellers. When arrested Mitchell said: “I have anger issues, he set me off so I scatted him.” In a victim impact statement the victim, who suffered a 6cm laceration to his head, said that he hoped Mitchell received help rather than punishment. Mitchell was said to have suffered post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after being pushed off a 200 metre cliff in Newquay.

. “On Christmas Eve you went out with your family to celebrate. I’ve seen the footage. It is clear from your body language drink played a significant part. You can be seen talking to the victim, hugging him and shaking his hand.
“But then something was said. He tells you to grow up. Then, entirely unprovoked, you landed a number of blows to his head. “You have expressed genuine remorse and disgust at what you did. The generosity of the victim was that although he suffered unpleasant injuries he concentrated on your need for support rather than punishment, saying he hopes you receive help for PTSD.” Judge Carr stated that Mitchell’s age, guilty plea, mental health issues and the attitude of the victim allowed him to suspend the prison sentence. Mitchell was given an eight-month prison sentence, suspended for two years and must complete a rehabilitation activity requirement.
