British teen arrested for ‘bottling bouncer so badly he needed 50 stitches’ at party hotspot in Spain

SCENE: Carrer Punta Ballena where a British teen is alleged to have bottled a bouncer

A BRITISH teen has been accused of bottling a bouncer so badly he needed 50 stitches.

The 19-year-old, who was partying in Magaluf, allegedly attacked the Lithuanian man after being refused entry to a club.

A row broke out after the lad wasn’t allowed back in, prompting him to smash a bottle on a terrace table, before allegedly plunging into the man’s face.

The bouncer was rushed to Palma’s Son Espases hospital, while the Brit was cuffed on attempted homicide charges.

However, the boy was told in court that he would instead face charges of wounding with a dangerous weapon.

The shocking incident occurred at 6am on Sunday in Carrer Punta Ballena, near an ‘advanced Civil Guard post’.

A judge told him he would be released if he could find the bail of €15,000, although it is unclear if he has come up with the cash.

A Guardia Civil spokesperson said: “A British man was arrested on Sunday following an incident involving another man outside an establishment in Punta Ballena.”

Investigators are believed to have CCTV footage of the assault, which it is thought the Brit is claiming was a self-defence attack.
