Ex-cagefighter from Shrewsbury denies violence charges

North Shropshire | News | Published:

A cagefighter from Shropshire has appeared in court with another man to deny charges of violence in a town centre.

Danny Suter, an elite fighter who was once ranked in the top 50 of the UK in the featherweight division for Mixed Martial Arts, was at Shrewsbury Crown Court yesterday. The 30-year-old, of Whitehouse Gardens in Ditherington, Shrewsbury, appeared at court alongside Jason Butter, 28, of Maer Lane, Market Drayton.

Both men pleaded not guilty to wounding Dominic Sheridan with intent between September 17 and September 20 last year in Market Drayton.

They also denied attempting to wound Bradley Birch with intent during the same dates. The defendants pleaded not guilty to assault occasioning actual bodily harm on Nicholas Parton. Both also denied possessing an offensive weapon, Suter a knife and Butter a garden fork, on Shrewsbury Road, Market Drayton. They also pleaded not guilty to a fifth charge of violent disorder in the town.

Judge Jim Tindal set a trial date for November 22. Both men were bailed until that date.
