A PUBLICAN has been arrested for beating a woman “to the floor in a bar” after footage of the incident was posted to his Facebook page with the caption “wife sorted lol”.
Field Bar in Neasden landlord Tim Sheahan, 42, was drinking at the northwest London venue when he appeared to get into an argument with another man at 11.21am on Sunday, June 18.
CCTV footage from inside the pub showed Mr Sheahan in a brief scuffle with a group of men that saw bar stools upturned.
Mr Sheahan can then be seen allegedly grabbing a woman — believed to be his wife — from behind the bar and dragging her by her hair onto her back.
She can then be seen huddled over on the floor of the main bar area as Mr Sheahan walked away.
He later posted the CCTV footage to his Facebook page with the caption “wife sorted lol”.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said the alleged incident was “believed to be domestic-related”.
“Police are investigating an allegation of assault at licensed premises on Neasden Lane, NW10 on the morning of Sunday, 18 June,” the spokesman said.
“A 42-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault and taken to a north London police station.
“He was released under investigation pending further inquiries.”
