An Elvis Presley impersonator who attacked the son of the star's guitarist at a tribute act convention in Birmingham has been spared jail.
Michael Cawthray punched and kicked Jeff Burton, the son of guitarist James Burton, after he found his wife leaving the performer's hotel room after January's European Elvis Championships at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole.
The attack left Mr Burton, 48, with a fractured nose, bruising and swelling to his face, shoulders and body, Warwick Crown Court, sitting in Leamington Spa, heard.
Elvis impersonator Cawthray, 43, of Ebberston Road East, Rhos-on-Sea, north Wales, previously pleaded guilty to one count of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
On Thursday he was sentenced to a 12-week prison sentence, suspended for a year. He was also ordered to do 80 hours of unpaid work, to pay £750 compensation and £1,370 court costs.
Prosecutor Mohammed Hafeez told the court Cawthray, who runs the company Elvis Contests Ltd, based in Birmingham, organised the annual competition and had arranged for Mr Burton, who lives in the United States, to perform.
He said Cawthray and his wife Sinead had arranged for Mr Burton to come over, perform and stay in a hotel. He said after the concert on January 8, Mrs Cawthray went to Mr Burton's room to thank him for his performance.
Mr Hafeez said Mr Burton then decided to have a shower, at which point Cawthray's wife left. He said as she did there was some banging at the door, and Mrs Cawthray said it was one of her crew members and left the room.
The court heard Cawthray had been downstairs looking for his wife and found her leaving the bedroom, with Mr Burton wearing no top.
The court heard he kicked Mr Burton between the legs, then pushed him backwards on to his bed, punching him with both fists to his face and head. The victim was left with a fractured nose, bruising and swelling around his face, shoulders and body.
