A HUSBAND threw a mug at his wife after a row over his affair, a court was told.
Appearing at North Somerset Courthouse, Alan Murch admitted one charge of assault by beating after the pair argued during a night of heavy drinking on September 6.
His actions caused his wife Jackie to suffer a cut to the back of her head.
Kieran Hughes, defending, said Mrs Murch knocked her tooth out reacting to the thrown mug.
He added: “My client is pleading guilty to recklessly throwing a mug which caused a small cut but she moved her head banging her mouth (on the table), losing the crown.”

Mr Hughes said Murch was ‘immediately contrite’ after the incident and helped his wife with her injuries.
The 48-year-old told police upon his arrest that he snapped because ‘she had been going for ages’.
