The 28-year-old, of Downside, East Ilsley, is charged with assaulting Benjamin Whitter in The Hatchet Inn, Market Place, Newbury, on March 26 last year, thereby occasioning him actual bodily harm.

Mr Lucas, who was legally represented at the hearing by Simon Hammudi, spoke only to confirm his details and to plead not guilty to the single charge.

He was told the case could proceed no further that day and that it would be adjourned for a trial to be arranged.

Mr Lucas was meanwhile released on unconditional bail.
