'Elvis' admits attacking rival
An Elvis impersonator has admitted attacking the son of the star's guitarist at a tribute act convention.
Michael Cawthray pleaded guilty to one count of assault occasioning actual bodily harm during a brief hearing at Warwick Crown Court in Leamington Spa yesterday.
Jeff Burton, the son of guitarist James Burton, is alleged to have been punched and kicked by Cawthray following January's European Elvis Championships at Birmingham's Hilton Metropole Hotel.
West Midlands Police said Burton, 48, was treated at the city's Heartlands Hospital for a broken cheekbone, a broken nose and cuts to his head.
A police spokesman said officers were called to the lobby of the hotel, near to the National Exhibition Centre, at 4.25am on January 9.
Cawthray, 43, of Ebberston Road East, Rhos-on-Sea, north Wales, will be sentenced at Warwick Crown Court during the week beginning May 16, a court spokeswoman said.
