Shocking moment drunk nurse mows down ex-lover with 4×4 in ‘red mist’ of booze-fuelled rage | The Sun

THIS is the shocking moment a nurse mowed down her former lover from behind in a rugby club car park.

Rebecca Thomas, 37, flew into a rage at ex-boyfriend David Robinson, 45, after spending the evening drinking.

A court heard she grabbed and punched him inside her car – before a "red mist descended" in the rugby club car park.

CCTV footage showed victim Mr Robinson trying to leave when raging Thomas smashed her car into him from behind.

Mr Robinson was seen flipping on to the car bonnet before he crashed into the ground at Birchgrove Rugby Club in Swansea, South Wales.

Prosecutor Brian Simpson said: “He lies there for about four and a half minutes before passers by come to help him. He then went to his new girlfriend’s house and later to hospital.”

Swansea Crown Court heard the pair had broken up four months before the row erupted in September last year.

Mr Simpson said: "Mr Robinson recalls being in the driver’s seat of the defendant’s car where she grabbed him, punched him, and pulled off his neck chain”.

The court heard Mr Robinson said “he had never seen the defendant as drunk as she was on that day".

Swansea Crown Court heard the pair were both were drunk at the time of the incident – and could not remember much.

Victim Mr Robinson suffered tenderness to the neck and arm, a black eye and bruising but was discharged from hospital with no serious injuries.

Defending Robin Rouch said Thomas had no previous convictions or cautions on her record.

The court heard Thomas was a nurse by profession and someone who is "highly valued."

Judge Geraint Walters said: “You were both heavily under the influence. This incident would not have happened if it was not for that.

"The reality is having been together that day the red mist descended on you.

"There was an altercation between you. When he walks off you drive away and you veer the car into him.”

Thomas, of Birchgrove, Swansea, admitted battery, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and dangerous driving.

She was handed a six-month prison sentence suspended for two years and a 30-hour rehabilitation activity requirement.
