    The drunkard who was barred from entering

    I am wondering if my sentences are grammatically correct. Is my punctuation correct?

    The drunkard who was barred from entering the nightclub revenged himself by smashing a few windows. He was so enraged that it took four bouncers to restrain him.

    Re: The drunkard who was barred from entering

    Was he definitely a known "drunkard" (that's another word for an alcoholic) or was he simply a very drunk man?

    I wouldn't use "revenged himself". I'd say "got his revenge".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    emsr2d2,

    Now I see that I made a mistake. I should have written, "A very drunk man who was barred from entering...."
