Lotto winner faces jail for assault
Friday 29 June 2012
A lottery millionaire and cage fighter is facing jail after admitting brutally beating his girlfriend.
Gavin Dale Davies, 29, subjected Daniah Hussain to a "prolonged" violent assault months after clinching a EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle win.
Davies, of Ammanford, South Wales, toasted his good fortune with champagne in January after claiming his £1 million two weeks after the draw.
At the time he vowed to turn his back on cage fighting and transform his win into a much bigger fortune.
Today he was remanded in custody at Swansea Crown Court after admitting causing actual bodily harm on April 20.
Davies, who will be sentenced on July 13, also admitted a single charge of assault on December 31. Two other assault charges were withdrawn. All related to Miss Hussain.
Claims that his victim is seeking medical help to reset her nose will be taken into account at sentencing if confirmed, the court heard.
Davies splashed out on three luxury cars after collecting his lottery cash - including a Lamborghini LP560-4.
The April attack happened while he was at the wheel of his "everyday" Audi after an argument broke out between him and his girlfriend.
Catherine Richards, prosecuting, described the attack as a "prolonged assault involving spitting".
Miss Hussain, who suffered swelling around the eyes and bruising to the neck, has since gone into hiding.
Judge Keith Thomas told Davies: "In relation to the two matters that you have admitted, I am adjourning proceedings for a pre-sentence report.
"You will remain in custody and return her for the that on July 13."
