A father accused of throwing a chemical in a pub diner's face has also been charged over an earlier incident, it has been revealed.
Dean Mayze, 25, appeared at Maidstone Crown Court today charged with assaulting Carandeep Mann, causing him actual bodily harm on August 26, and causing Philip Turner grievous bodily harm with intent on November 4.
Alexia Zimbler, prosecuting, said both charges related to the use of ammonia in two separate incidents.
Mayze, of High Street, Strood, was remanded in custody after 26-year-old Mr Turner, from Gravesend, was injured at The Copperfield in Shorne on Sunday, November 4.
Mr Turner was dining with his girlfriend when the incident happened. He was taken to Medway Maritime Hospital and said to be seriously ill in intensive care. He suffered an injury to his eye.
Judge Michael Carroll refused a bail application by Pieter Briegel, defending, and remanded Mayze - father of an eight-month-old child - in custody until January 11, when pleas will be entered.
A provisional trial date was set for April 29.
Mr Briegel said he understood Mayze, who spoke only to be identified, would be pleading not guilty.
