Mr Mayle said: “He became aggressive, stressed. He was unable to find his trousers. His mother was unable to help him, people were laughing at him.”
The court heard Burton, who is about to start work at a holiday camp, had previous convictions relating to domestic incidents at his home, including criminal damage and assault.
His solicitor, Arthur Balls, told magistrates that his client insisted he never elbowed or punched his mother but had merely pushed her away instead.
Magistrates adjourned Burton's sentencing to a later date and warned him that his offence was so serious he could face going to jail or face a stiff community punishment.
Burton was bailed to reappear before the court on January 13. His bail conditions mean he cannot go near his family home.
