A 36-year-old man followed a waitress he did not know around a Dundee restaurant before assaulting a member of staff when he was confronted.
Dundee Sheriff Court heard Anupum Dogra, of Bank Avenue, was unknown to his victim when he arrived at her work at Medina, on Nethergate.
Fiscal depute Kirsten Thomson told the court Dogra entered the restaurant at 5.45pm on November 13 and ordered a drink from the waitress.
The fiscal said: “A short time later she became aware of the accused following her around the restaurant while she served food.
“She became uncomfortable and he shouted at her.
“A supervisor noticed this and asked the accused to stay in his seat or he would have to leave. The accused agreed but continued to follow the complainer.
“He was asked to leave and became very aggressive and started shouting.”
Dogra shouted threats to staff, who contacted police.
The fiscal continued: “Staff asked the chef, Garry Crighton, to come to the bar while they contacted the police.
“The accused picked up a bottle and threw it, hitting a wall behind the bar. He made threats towards staff saying he would kill them. He went to leave and as he did so he pushed Mr Crighton and hit the windows with his hands.”
Police saw Dogra leaving the restaurant and entering the Nether Inn and detained him.
He continued to be aggressive and made threats to police as he was placed in a police car.
Once inside the vehicle, he kicked at the dashboard and windows and continued to shout.
Dogra was taken to police headquarters where he was found to have 10.2g of cannabis on him, with a value of 100.
Solicitor Anika Jethwa, defending, said: “At the time of the offence his relationship had just broken down. As his personal life fell apart he started abusing alcohol.
“He has very little recollection of what happened that night, he was drinking double whiskies all night.
“He is deeply ashamed and embarrassed and cannot believe he conducted himself in this manner.”
Dogra admitted four charges, all of which took place on November 13.
He admitted conducting himself in a disorderly manner, and assaulting Garry Crighton, at Medina public house and restaurant.
And he admitted resisting three police officers at Nethergate and having cannabis at police HQ.
Sentence was deferred until January 6 for reports and Dogra was placed on a curfew meantime, confining him to his home between 7pm and 7am daily.
