A Dundee man who threw a pint glass at a pub landlady has been ordered to do unpaid work.
Paul Chalmers, 36, has also been banned from the Dolphin Bar in Fintry following the incident, which happened on April 29.
Chalmers, of St Columba Gardens, aimed the container at licence-holder Lisa Low from just a few yards away.
It landed on the ground close to her feet and smashed.
Dundee Sheriff Court heard Chalmers had entered the pub at around 6pm shortly after Ms Low had started her shift.
He was seen to exit and return to the pub on a number of occasions, walking up to the bar to carry out the attack at around 10.40pm.
Prosecutors said Chalmers was seen to make a “swiping motion” to pick up the glass and hurl it in Ms Low’s direction.
Chalmers admitted an amended charge of assaulting Ms Low by throwing the glass at her.
He also admitted a separate offence of failing to appear at a court hearing on July 23, having been granted bail on May 14 at Dundee Sheriff Court.
Sheriff Derek Reekie admonished him on the failure to appear charge and sentenced him to 100 hours of unpaid work for the assault.
He told Chalmers: “This was a nasty offence.
“Throwing in a pub is serious and you’re fortunate that it didn’t connect with someone.
“You have a previous conviction for an offence of violence.
“However, you have a limited record and you have apologised.”
Sheriff Reekie ordered Chalmers to complete his unpaid work in a period of six months.
