Jesse Ryder attacker pleads guilty

Related

One of the men charged with bashing Jesse Ryder has pleaded guilty to his part in the assault.

The 20-year-old was charged with two counts of assault following the altercation with the cricketer outside a Merivale bar in Christchurch in March.

He has this morning pleaded guilty to one charge - police have withdrawn the other.

His 37-year-old Uncle is also charged with assault and injuring with reckless disregard for safety.

It was revealed in court today that Jesse Ryder and the younger accused were drinking at the bar on the night of March 28, when Jesse Ryder left without paying for the tab.

An altercation erupted outside the bar where the 20-year-old kicked Jesse Ryder in the shoulder.

A judge has continued name suppression for the two men accused of bashing Jesse Ryder.
