Racist Engineer's Drunken Strip-Club Bust-Up

A highly-qualified engineer, who was refused entry to a strip club, punched one of the doormen and launched into a race-hate rant when police took him to hospital for treatment to injuries he sustained during the confrontation.

Senior Process Safety Engineer Anthony Swindells, 44, of South Court, Wexford Road, Prenton, Birkenhead, who designs safety platform in the oil and gas industry, was enjoying a day out in London's West End when he was arrested.

Swindells, currently working in Reading, Berkshire, pleaded guilty to assaulting Alexander Sinitskiy outside the Sophisticats strip club, Marylebone Lane, Mayfair on September 6 and racially-aggravated threatening behaviour at St. Mary's Hospital, Paddington.

He received a twelve-month community order, which includes an alcohol treatment requirement, and was ordered to pay £50 compensation to the victim and £85 costs.

Prosecutor Miss Kate Shilton told Hammersmith Magistrates Court: “The defendant got into an altercation with security staff when refused entry and he became angry and aggressive and threatened to kill the staff.

He was seen on CCTV swinging his arm three times and connected on the third occasion with Mr. Sinitskiy, who reported feeling numbness in his upper right teeth.”

Police were called and took Swindells to hospital at 1.30am, where he made a reference to islamic terror group ISIS.

He said: 'You should be chasing the muslims not me. They're trying to bomb us.'

In the CT room Swindells shouted: 'You f***ing paki c***,' and became aggressive and got in the police officer's face,” added Miss Shilton. “He was so aggressive the CT scan was cancelled.”

It was the latest in a series of alcohol-related incidents involving the defendant, who last year was arrested on three occasions for being drunk and disorderly and once for disorderly behaviour.

He's turned to drink as a result of things going wrong and he's ashamed and embarrassed,” said Mr. Norman Cho, defending. “You're very unlikely to see him in court ever again.”
