A Dewsbury man has been jailed for eight years following an incident outside a Batley nightclub in Batley where a man was knocked down by a car.
The incident happened around 4:41am on New Year’s Day outside the TBC nightclub on Bradford Road.
A 21-year-old man was knocked down by a blue Mercedes suffering serious injuries to his head, body and legs.
Hamza Ali Hussain, aged 23, from Dewsbury was charged with section 18 wounding.
He appeared at Leeds Crown Court on 6 February and entered a guilty plea to the assault and also a number of motoring offences.
Detective Inspector Mark Catney, of Kirklees CID, who led the investigation, said: “Hussain’s actions that day were reckless and violent as he deliberately drove his car into a crowded area outside a busy nightclub on New Year’s Day. This incident has left a young man with serious injuries.
“We welcome the sentence which has been handed down to Hussain today and hope that it will provide the victim and his family with closure and justice following this terrible ordeal.”
