Michael Stokes, 56, dislocated his shoulder after throwing a chair during the 50-person brawl that caused £18,000 worth of damage to the Daresbury Park Hotel in Cheshire.

Eight members of his family have previously been jailed for their part in the violence, which saw some guests barricade themselves into a function room for safety.
