Jail for young barman who stabbed teenager in neck
A TEENAGER who stabbed a man in the neck during an argument outside a Weston nightclub has been jailed.
Barman Sam Walters, aged 18, launched the attack on Sam Fisher as the pair stood outside Players Sports Club in the Boulevard last October.
Mr Fisher, aged 19, suffered a serious wound to his neck and could have died if it had not been for a friend who stemmed the blood flow.
Walters, who lives in Palmer Street, was sentenced to 21 months in prison at Bristol Crown Court on Monday.
The incident happened when Walters, who was working behind the bar on a trial basis, walked outside the establishment in dispute with Mr Fisher.
