Woman Jailed For Racist Attack On Wetherspoons Bouncer

Woman Jailed For Racist Attack On Wetherspoons Bouncer

The footage had previously gone viral on social media.

A woman has been jailed after she racially abused a bouncer in Birmingham.

Footage of Sharna Walker, 25, went viral earlier this year after someone filmed her shouting racist slurs and insults at doorman Tristan Price, 26, when he refused her entry into a Wetherspoons pub.

Shoving the security guard, she used highly offensive racist language before appearing to spit on Price in Birmingham’s busy Broad Street area.

After Walker pleaded guilty to racially aggravated common assault and criminal damage, District Judge John Bristow told her: “This was prolonged assault and you used a door against Mr Price’s shoulder. The incident has stayed with Mr Price and he has had to seek help.

“I have no doubt the footage caused serious distress throughout Birmingham.

“You are a risk to the public; the appropriate punishment is immediate custody. This conduct was serious - only immediate custody is justified.

“I am sending you to prison to 14 weeks. I have reduced your sentence because of your plea.”

Walker reportedly broke down in tears after she was given a custodial sentence.

Describing the incident, prosecutor Sarah Woulfe said: “Ms Walker was stood near the door shouting you 'f*****g n*****' and 'black c**t and stepped towards Mr Price.

“Mr Price went back inside. Ms Walker slammed the door into him. Mr Price came back outside the door and Ms Walker spat at Mr Price, landing on his feet and hands.

“Ms Walker shoved the door and hit Mr Price's shoulder.”

Price previously told the Birmingham Mail that people of colour should not be victims of such abuse when they are simply doing their job.

"I don't want to bring trouble to her door but this behaviour needs to be called out. It is completely unacceptable,” he explained.

"People have killed themselves because of the racial abuse they suffer, and we can't be silent about it. I have had a knife pulled on me while at work, which was pretty shocking. But this was worse, it affected me more because it was so vicious."
