    A student flooded a nightclub after trying to beat a friend in a pull-up contest on a water pipe, a court has heard.

    The floods caused £150,000 of damage at Tiger Tiger in Haymarket, central London



    Jonathan Stepien caused £150,000 of damage after splitting Tiger Tiger's waterpipe in half during an alcohol-fuelled strength test.

    Stepien came crashing to the floor as water gushed out of the pipe and poured down the stairs, across three floors of the club in Haymarket, central London.

    The flooding was so bad that the club had to replace flooring in two bars, a restaurant and a lounge.

    The City University student said: "I am an idiot. I am so sorry. I didn't expect it to break.

    "My mate did two pull-ups, I thought I could do three. I'm really, really sorry."

    He pleaded guilty to criminal damage last month and will be sentenced at a later date.

    Prosecuting lawyer Jacques Howell said: "The act comes as a result of what can best be described as an alcohol-fuelled act of buffoonery.

    "The defendant managed to build up some momentum by way of some pendulum motion."

    The judge, Recorder Philip Singer QC, said he did not think a custodial sentence or community service was appropriate and added he was intending to impose a fine.

    The court heard that Stepien made "full and frank admissions" and also asked officers if there was anything he could do as a "goodwill gesture".

    I kinda feel for the guy. Thats the kinda thing I can imagine myself doing while wasted at a rave. At least the guy fully admitted that he fucked up and was sorry.

    Haha I love the Darwin awards. Once a guy killed himself by shaking a vending machine too hard and it fell forward and crushed him.

    I've had a swing on some ceiling pipes at a Ldn squat do. Didn't flood the place, or cause any damage. & could do plenty pullups. & would have walked away undetected if I had wrecked it.
