Couple made assault claim after fighting man in street
A LLANELLI couple who claimed to have been assaulted ended up in court after it was found they had been fighting a man in the street.
The pair — along with the other man — appeared at Llanelli Magistrates' Court on Thursday charged with using threatening, abusive words or behaviour with intent to cause harassment, alarm or distress, following the incident on September 26.
Annelise Curdy Davies, 18, of Hall Street, Jonathan Robert Leonard Morgan, 23, also of Hall Street, and Nathan Daniel Denton, 28, of Coldstream Street, all pleaded guilty to the offence.
The court heard how Davies and Morgan, who live together, had been in a kebab shop in Murray Street at around 10.30pm when they got into an altercation with Denton and another woman.

Prosecuting, Gerald Neave said: "Police were patrolling Murray Street and the defendant Davies called the officers, requesting their attention.
"It was clear she was intoxicated, she was slurring her speech. She explained she and her boyfriend had just been assaulted on the street.
"The police confirmed there was an official complaint of assault by defendant Davies."
But he said officers then obtained CCTV evidence from the night before charging all three.
Mr Neave said: "This footage alarmed one of the officers as they saw the defendant Davies and the defendant Morgan were fighting with the other two."
In mitigation, Andrew Isaac, representing Davies and Morgan, said it was an "unfortunate incident".
He said: "All parties have been talking in court today. There has been no negative attitude.
"Drink was the prevalent factor.
"Hopefully this will be the first and last time that Mr Morgan and Miss Davies will ever be before a court."
Representing Denton, Gareth Jones said he was currently doing well on a community order imposed for a different offence.
He said: "They've all shaken hands, it's a shame it's taken so long to deal with. In fairness to Mr Denton, he is co-operating fully with the order he is on."
Sentencing the defendants, magistrates gave all three a six-month conditional discharge for the offence.
