When a 31-year-old man returned home to Mablethorpe in the early hours of the morning after a night’s drinking, he got involved in an argument with his wife during which she fell over, a court has heard.
Mark Lack, now living in Sleaford, admitted assaulting his wife Kim Lack and to producing a cannabis plant on October 15 last year.
Nick Todd, prosecuting, said Lack went home to Cambridge Road North in Mablethorpe in the early hours. There was an argument and he pushed his wife out of the way and she fell, after which he fell on top of her injuring her back, before a neighbour pulled him off.
Mrs Lack complained to police and also gave them a cannabis plant Lack had kept for his own use.
In defence, Saleem Khan said it had been a reckless push after a heated argument.
He said Lack, who was of good character, was trying to leave the house and she was in his way so pushed her and she fell over a doorstep and he fell over on top of her.
Lack was fined £110 for possession of cannabis with no separate penalty for the assault.
He was ordered to pay £40 costs and £20 victim surcharge.
