The three men on trial following the death of a drunk man outside a Maidenhead restaurant have been found not guilty.
Jake Corney, Gary Eastley and Dawid Lamkowski were found not guilty of manslaughter after 34-year-old Marcin Pastuszczak died on November 7, 2012 outside Boulters Terrace Bar and Riverside Brasserie, following a two week trial.
The verdict was announced this afternoon at Guildford Crown Court after the jury spent two hours and 46 minutes deliberating.
Pastuzczak, a heavy drinker, had been banned from the majority of pubs in the Maidenhead area.
He died of a heart attack during restraint after being taken out of the premises by 26-year-old bar manager Eastley, of Moor Lane in Maidenhead, and 26-year-old restaurant manager Lamkowski from Kent.
The pair were later joined by 23-year-old Corney, of Filmer Road in Windsor.
During the trial Pastuszczak's behaviour was described by the accused as 'intimidating' and 'aggressive.'
