A drunken thug left a barmaid with a cut to her eyeball after punching a pub window, causing glass to smash into her face.
Anthony Deans, 39, of Erskine Street, carried out the attack at the Bush Bar, Seagate, after he was refused alcohol for being “too drunk”.
Dundee Sheriff Court heard barmaid Chelsea Wolecki repeatedly asked Deans to leave on February 1 but he kept coming back. He launched an attack on another customer, Raymond Bruce, and punched him repeatedly on the face.
He punched a pane of glass in the pub’s door, causing it to smash in the direction of Ms Wolecki.
Fiscal depute Saima Rasheed said: “She tried to protect herself but she was hit by glass, and blood was seen to come from her face.”
Police were called at 1.30am and found Deans at home. The fiscal continued: “The accused took an instant dislike to one of officers. He was asked on several occasions to calm down but kept challenging them to fight.
“He threw a punched that connected with an officer’s nose. Then he head-butted another officer and was restrained, but lashed out at a third officer.”
Deans admitted assaulting Raymond Bruce by repeatedly punching him on the face at Bush Bar, Seagate, on February 1, while on bail.
He further admitted assaulting Chelsea Wolecki by punching a glass window which smashed and glass struck her on the face, to her injury and disfigurement at the same location and on the same date.
Deans further admitted assaulting PC Robert Cowan by punching him on the face, at a property on Erskine Street, on February 2.
And he admitted assaulting PC James Buchanan by head-butting him on the face, and assaulting PC Nicola Grant by attempting to punch and kick her on the body, at the same location and on the same date.
Also in a separate case Deans admitted assaulting his partner Debbie Patterson by repeatedly striking her on the head, seizing her by the hair and pushing her against a wall, all to her injury, at Session Street, on December 4 last year.
Sentence was deferred on both cases until June 7 for reports.
