Jon Cooper made threatening phone calls to his partner before punching a man multiple times outside a Whittlesey pub, a court was told.
Cooper, 30, was heard making threats while on the phone to his partner on September 4 last year.
The next day, Cooper parked outside a pub in Whittlesey run by his partner’s mum.
He played loud music from his vehicle while the pub was open and serving customers.
A pub customer confronted Cooper and asked him to turn his music down, but as he did so Cooper pulled him into his vehicle and punched him multiple times.
