Ex chased former partner's new man in Inverness
A JILTED boyfriend reacted angrily when he saw the girl who had just split up with him in the company of another man.
Inverness Sheriff Court heard this week that 20-year-old Nathan Bisset had been told by his partner on February 3 this year that their relationship was over.
But later that evening, suspicions Bisset already had about the involvement of another man in her decision appeared to be confirmed.
A chance encounter between the trio in Castle Street, Inverness, saw Bisset assault the man, Fraser Morrison.
His attack led to Mr Morrison having to go to hospital with a suspected broken nose and bruising around the eyes.
Fiscal depute Susan Love told the court that Bisset, of Kessock Avenue, Inverness, saw his former girlfriend and Mr Morrison meet each other outside Cafe 1 in Castle Street.
“He came running down the street, pursued Mr Morrison and caused him to fall to the ground, hitting his head,” she said.
“Bisset was then led away by a friend.”
Defence solicitor Clare Russell said her client had been told that day that his two-year relationship was over.
“He had his suspicions and in a moment of madness this offence was committed,” she said.
Bisset admitted assault and was fined £400.
However Sheriff Margaret Neilson also noted that this was Bisset’s second conviction for assault and warned him that another one could see him facing a custodial sentence.
