An off-duty officer was in the pub at the time and escorted Anderson from the building. When they got outside, Anderson pushed the officer into the road as a lorry drove past.

He suffered extensive bruising to his back where the lorry wheel struck him.

Anderson (22), of Bevin Place, Chesterfield Road, North Wingfield, was charged with causing actual bodily harm and pleaded guilty.

He was sentenced at Derby Crown Court yesterday (Wednesday, June 20).
