In response to this potential threat, one of the victims armed themselves with a metal bar, so 30-year-old Webb grabbed his own weapon.

Webb, who had been drinking heavily before the confrontation, first told police he had picked up a cardboard tube but accepted during his court appearance he had actually brandished a wooden bat.
