A HARTLEPOOL man who was at the centre of a holiday sex scandal has appeared in court and admitted breaching a court order.

Alan Collinson, 28, was arrested by West Yorkshire Police on Thursday shortly after touching down at Leeds Bradford Airport.

He appeared at Hartlepool Magistrates’ Court on Friday morning.

Collinson runs Carnage Events in Majorca’s party capital Magaluf, and hit the national headlines in July after claims a teenage reveller took part in a sordid sex game involving 24 men.

A video of the incident was posted online, and it sparked outrage after going viral.

Collinson, a former squaddie who served in Afghanistan, had previously attacked Jamie Fleming in what was described as an unprovoked attack in the town’s Princess Helena pub back in 2010.

Collinson, formerly of the town’s Grasmere Street, was sentenced to 12 months in prison, suspended for 12 months, with supervision after leaving Mr Fleming with a fractured eye socket.

Now he has been ordered back before the court for breaching the court order.

Collinson, of Middleton Road, in Hartlepool, admitted failing to comply with a suspended sentence supervision order of 12 months imposed at Teesside Crown Court for an offence of inflicting grievous bodily harm, by failing to attend arranged supervision appointments on January 31, 2012 and February 2, 2012, without giving an acceptable reason for non-attendance within five working days.

Chairman of the bench Keith Kitching sent the case back to Teesside Crown Court, where it was originally dealt with, for a date which has yet to be set.

The defendant was released on bail with conditions that he must surrender his passport to police, and also reside at his home address.

The warrant which saw Collinson arrested and brought back to court was issued in February 2012.

A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “A 28-year-old Cleveland man was yesterday, on Thursday, arrested at Leeds Bradford Airport on a warrant issued by Hartlepool Magistrates’ Court for a breach of a court order.

“He has now been transferred back to that force area.”
