A man who got out of a taxi without paying the fare, then punched the driver when he asked for the money, was made to pay compensation.
Alan McRae, 54, of Kerrystone Court, was made to pay £10.46 compensation at Dundee Sheriff Court, which was the original taxi fare.
The court previously heard McRae picked up the taxi from Nethergate, on August 1.
Fiscal depute Muhammad Sadiq told the court McRae was on a night out with friend John Farmer, 50, of Cobden Street.
The fiscal said Farmer left the town centre around 9pm and slightly later McRae got into a taxi and asked to go to Cobden Street.
When the taxi arrived, McRae refused to pay the fare and shouted towards the driver, and then punched the driver on the head.
The driver, Naseh Ahmad, contacted police who arrived shortly after and traced McRae inside one of the properties on Cobden, along with Farmer.
Farmer began to struggle with both officers and pushed one of them.
McRae admitted hiring a taxi and refusing to pay the fare of £10.46 on August 1 at Nethergate.
He also admitted assaulting Naseh Ahmad by seizing him by the clothing and repeatedly punching him on the head on the same date at Cobden Street.
Farmer admitted assaulting Pc Neil Wood by pushing him on the body and resisting two police officers on the same date and location.
Farmer was placed on a four month Restriction of Liberty Order confining him to his home address between the hours of 7pm and 7am daily.
