A man who admitted scarring a bystander by throwing a glass during a christening party in a Dundee pub has been warned he could face jail time if he does not behave.
Dale Ramsay, 26, previously admitted attacking Frank Anderson at the Medina Bar & Grill on Nethergate on May 26.
Ramsay was due to be sentenced yesterday at Dundee Sheriff Court, but Sheriff Jillian Martin-Brown deferred sentence until next month for a restriction of liberty assessment.
But Sheriff Martin-Brown warned Ramsay that custody will remain an option if he does not co-operate and stay out of trouble.
Defence solicitor Michael Short said Ramsay could benefit from “guidance” to help him learn how to control his temper.
Mr Short said: “We need someone who is going to take him by the hand and guide him on how an adult behaves.”
Ramsay saw red in the Medina after a glass was thrown in his direction.
He retorted by throwing a glass which struck Mr Anderson, who was not involved in the argument which precipitated the tumblers being thrown.
He suffered permanent scarring to his forehead as a result.
Ramsay, of Craigmount Road, Dundee, also admitted attacking his partner two days later after being confronted by her sister about previous allegations against him.
He struck his partner on the face after entering her house on Wentworth Gardens, Dundee, complaining about her sister’s comments.
Ramsay is due to be sentenced on January 27.
He was released on bail.
