Falling like ninepins! Drinkers duck as rogue pub skittle flies off table and smashes beer glass

  • CCTV captures moment a skittles pin smashes a glass in Highfields Inn, Cardiff
  • Drinkers duck and another shields their head as the pin flies from skittles table
  • Another clip shows skittle soar through the air and smash into empty beer glass

This is the dramatic moment drinkers were showered with shards of glass after a rogue skittles pin flew from the table and smashed into a beer glass.

The CCTV footage, taken at the Highfields Inn in Cardiff, captures a group of four men as they watch a game of skittles while enjoying a pint at their local pub.

But moments after a ball is rolled by a competitor, the men are forced to duck when a pin flies from the table and smashes into an empty beer glass placed on a nearby ledge.

One man covers his head with his arms as the pin soars into the air above him – and another jumps away from the scene.

Fellow spectators are then seen giving the area a cursory glance before swiftly turning their attention back to their pints. 

The footage was posted to Twitter on Thursday alongside the caption: ‘Be careful when you play skittles in the Highfields.’

Another clip, filmed from a different angle inside the pub and posted by Jordan Perks, captures the moment before the unwitting spectators were forced to duck for cover.

Mr Perks is seen placing his hands protectively to his head as the glass smashes around him. 

He posted the clip to Twitter with the caption: ‘Here’s the other view. When the pin attacked.’
