The offence happened in a pub on James Street, Rugby on 8 September 2017, when Darcy assaulted a 27-year-old man. The victim sustained broken jaw and cheek bone injuries.

Darcy pleaded not guilty to the offence and following a trial he was subsequently found guilty.

In addition to the sentencing, he also had a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) imposed which prohibits him from entering any public house within Rugby town centre or any other public house which bars him in writing. This will be in effect until June 2024.
