An Angus oil worker was fined £2,000 when he appeared at Forfar Sheriff Court following an ill-fated trip to a Montrose pub for “hair of the dog”.
Dean Bramwell, 35, of Piccadilly, Montrose, admitted assaulting an employee at the Lochside Bar on November 19 last year by throwing a glass at her.
He also admitted behaving in a threatening or abusive manner by shouting, swearing and gesticulating offensively, making offensive remarks and pushing a glass off the bar, causing it to smash on the ground.
Depute fiscal Jill Drummond told the court Bramwell raised his middle finger and shouted abuse at a member of staff at about 7.50pm on the evening in question.
He was refused another drink and pushed a half pint on to the floor before being asked to leave.
Patrons tried to calm him down and he was eventually removed.
Part of the incident was captured on CCTV.
