Man fined for assaulting Dundee landlord with twigs

Man fined for assaulting Dundee landlord with twigs

A handful of twigs was used as a weapon during an assault at a Maryfield pub, Dundee Sheriff Court heard.

Mark Tait, 38, of St Mary Street, was found guilty of assaulting the landlord of The Three J’s, in Dundonald Street, by striking him in the face with the twigs.

Giving evidence, Colin Bamburgh told the court how he had suffered a cut to the chin and right side of his face after the attack.

He said: “It just happened so quickly. I thought it was a weapon coming up to my face. I think he had around 10 or 12 twigs.”

The incident took place on Sunday March 17 after Tait had been refused any more alcohol and was escorted from the pub. The court heard he then returned a short time later and committed the assault.

Sheriff McGowan had to pause proceedings to warn Tait for making an “aggressive facial expression” towards witnesses before finding him guilty of the assault and imposing a fine of £400.
