Wife Battered With Fish

`Drunk husband John Cole faced the scales of justice for hitting his wife Elaine with a fish.

A court heard the hung-over former fork-lift driver woke up in a rage thinking she had hidden two cans of beer.

He punched the ex-barmaid after hitting her with the 8lb pike from their kitchen during Tuesday’s row. [..]

After Wednesday’s hearing, regretful Cole said he couldn’t bring himself to eat the pike.

He revealed: “I fed it to our cats and dogs.”

Elaine, 49, said she forgave him but added: “I could’ve been seriously hurt or killed by that fish.”‘
