Wage query led to assault

A WOMAN had her nose broken in Salamanca Square after asking a man how much he earned, the Supreme Court has heard.

Security camera footage of the attack played to the Hobart court showed 26-year-old Matthew Wayne Tennant running from the scene, leaving the woman prone on the ground.

Tennant, from Strahan, today pleaded guilty to assaulting the 42-year-old at 4.15am on February 18 last year.

Prosecutor Heather Mannering said Tennant became enraged after the woman asked him how much he earned as a commercial diver as they chatted outside a bakery.

After some pushing and shoving, Tennant pushed the woman and she fell, hitting her head. After a second scuffle, she again hit the ground but did not get up.

The woman suffered grazing, a broken nose and spinal injuries.

Ms Mannering said both Tennant and the victim were heavily intoxicated.

Defence lawyer Kim Baumeler said her client had been enjoying an evening out and had not intended to hurt anyone.

"He didn't set out to be violent," she said.

"But he did, in spades," said Justice Shan Tennent.

"My perception of looking at that video is that he threw her, he picked her up and threw her, and she landed on her face."

Ms Baumeler said Tennant had been shunned and ostracised in his community because of the attack.

"He is shocked and appalled by the way he acted," she said.

"He accepts that he went overboard."

Tennant had turned himself in to police just hours after the attack, she said.

Justice Tennent will sentence him on March 12.
