Jilted soldier knocked ex-lover unconscious after shoving her over sofa, court hears

The 27-year-old said: “Lieut McGregor approached me a couple of times and asked to speak privately.

“I felt like he was disrespectful to the people I was with. I asked him to remember his manners and I think that ended there.

“I finally agreed to go into another room with him and Lieut Smith.

“That was the room where we had the conversation — or the confrontation.”

“Take him away from me”

Lieut Bird said she told Lieut McGregor not to embarrass her again and he then pushed her as she tried to leave the anteroom, causing her to fall over a sofa and hit her head struck.

“I taught him,” she said. “I told him to stop embarrassing me … ‘This has to end now’ — that sort of thing.

“I tried to walk and get past him but Lieut McGregor stopped me with his hands.

“Then he pushed me backwards with both hands. It was a powerful push and I remember waking up next on the other side of the sofa.

“I didn’t know what hit me… I was disoriented and confused. The first thing I said when I woke up was “take him away from me”.

‘I heard Lieut Smith say [another officer] that Patrick pushed me over the sofa and I was unconscious for about 10 seconds.

“Patrick was outside the room and I remember him yelling I did it to myself.”

However, Matthew Bolt, Lieut McGregor’s attorney, told 2nd Lieut Bird during cross-examination: “You just bumped into him in your anger and fell. You were unbalanced.”

“You lost your balance because you were too close to Lieut McGregor, you were wearing high heels and you were drunk.”
