A drinker who allegedly died after being restrained by three men has been described in court as an 'immensely strong' man who had a notorious reputation among publicans.
A jury at Guildford Crown Court has heard Marcin Pastuszczak was a 'heavy drinker' who was banned from pubs in the Maidenhead area following an incident at the Hand and Flowers, in Queen Street.
The court was also told he had made more than 40 nuisance calls to police between the beginning of July 2012 and the time of his death.
Gary Eastley, Dawid Lamkowski and Jake Corney are standing trial at the court, accused of the manslaughter of Mr Pastuszczak following an incident at Boulters Terrace Bar and Riverside Brasserie in Boulters Lock on November 7, 2012.
On Tuesday, the court heard the bar was one of a handful in the town Mr Pastuszczak was not banned from, but he still attempted to be served in several places.
The court also heard the 34-year-old had been charged with making nuisance calls to police in July 2012.
He was described as being 'intoxicated' for the majority of his calls, and on one occasion he began talking about what he wanted for Christmas.
On Monday, the court heard evidence from Sergeant Mark Hammond, an off-duty police officer who had encountered Mr Pastuszczak at a pub in Wooburn Common in September 2012.
He said Mr Pastuszczak bit him on the arm as he struggled to help remove him from the pub after he had been asked to leave for spitting on the floor.
Sgt Hammond added: "My impression of him was that he was immensely strong man, one of the strongest men I have ever met."
Corney, 23, of Filmer Road in Windsor; Eastley, 26, of Moor Lane in Maidenhead and Dawid Lamkowski, 29, of Snowdon Avenue in Maidstone, Kent, all deny manslaughter.
The trial continues.
