A school governor who assaulted a taxi driver after being refused entry to a strip club has escaped jail.
Company director Joseph McCann, 31, punched minicab driver Kamal Hussain in a drunken rage outside Secrets table dancing club in Eversholt Street, Euston.
McCann, of Southbrook Drive, Cheshunt, also smashed the wing mirror on Mr Hussain’s Mercedes as he took out his frustration after being denied entry to the topless club on June 21.
The chief executive of Teach Now, an education recruitment consultancy based in Finchley, pleaded guilty to common assault and causing criminal damage at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court.
He was fined £250 at a sentencing on Friday and handed a total bill of £705 including compensation to the victim and costs.

McCann, who is a governor at a Cheshunt primary school and has links to Haringey Sixth Form Centre, told the court: “I am sorry. I’m a governor of a school, I’m a friend of Haringey sixth form, I do a lot for disadvantaged children and I’m a bit gutted that I’m here today.”
District Judge John Perkins said: “It’s clear alcohol played its part in making you behave out of character.”
