A PEMBROKE man who was stabbed at a party and suffered an eight-inch laceration to his lung faced a further setback at hospital when police found him in possession of amphetamines.
Admitting the charge of possessing an unknown quantity of Class B drugs before Haverfordwest magistrates this week was Aaron Simpson, 30, of Main Street, Pembroke.
The offence took place on August 29 when Simpson was taken to Morriston Hospital to receive treatment for his stab wound. When police came to interview him, they discovered a small clear bag in his possession containing an unknown quantity of amphetamines.
Representing the defendant, Mr Peter Tarr said the incident has had a profound effect on Simpson. “He’d been at a party, he was assaulted, he was stabbed, he was taken to hospital with an eight-inch laceration to his lung and then he faced this charge. He now suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress as a result of what happened that day.”
Simpson was fined £80, ordered to pay £85 costs and a £34 surcharge.
