Doncaster man Richard Vallance has been acquitted of a charge of wounding/inflicting grievous bodily harm without intent, following a hearing at Sheffield Crown Court.

The hearing took place yesterday, when the charge was dropped due to a lack of evidence in the case provided by the prosecution.

The charge related to an alleged incident that took place in Doncaster on January 6.

Vallance, of Argyle Avenue, Intake was found guilty of two charges of public order offences in a separate case at Doncaster Magistrates' Court on Monday.

The charges related to two separate incidents outside Doncaster Royal Infirmary on April 22, when the 35-year-old, who also refers to himself as the 'Donny Klown' was found to have deliberately scared and caused alarm to two healthcare assistants on their way to work.

He was wearing what was described as a horror mask during the incident.

He is due to be sentenced for the two public order offences at Doncaster Magistrates' Court on Tuesday, September 27.
