A Pembroke Dock man’s attempt to threaten revellers with his dog backfired when it defecated on a pub floor, Haverfordwest magistrates heard this week.

Nathan Kenrick, aged 23, of Munro Court, was bound over to keep the peace for 12 months following an incident on January 22 at the Bush Tavern.

The court heard Kenrick had been drinking and a door supervisor had spoken to him about his behaviour.

Prosecutor Ellie Morgan said Kenrick walked off shouting he would fight the bouncers, fight “all those boys” and that he was going to get his dog.

He came back with a rottweiler type dog and tried to set it on someone but the dog “simply sat there and defecated,” Ms Morgan said.

Kenrick had been charged with a section four public order offence - using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour with intent to cause belief that violence would be used - but the prosecution felt a bind over would be suitable and the original charge was dismissed.
