The assault took place in the women's toilets of a city centre pub.

Inverness Sheriff Court heard Pamela Rattray (41) at Lauders Bar.

Fiscal depute Karen Pole said the assault took place around 2.30am on August 22 last year in the Church Street premises.

She said Rattray had gone into the toilet where she encountered another woman.

Ms Poke said: “A fight broke out between the two of them.”

The court heard the partner of the other woman then ran in to see what the disturbance was.

Ms Poke said: “The accused then took a part of the toilet cistern and hit him over the head with it.”

The man was taken to Raigmore Hospital but discharged himself against medical advice.

Rattray had previously admitted the assault and threatening and abusive behaviour.

Defence agent Rory Gowans said: “She accepts her involvement and wishes she had just gone home.”

Sheriff Robert Frazer said: “Your behaviour in this particular incident was completely unacceptable.

Rattray, of Galloway Drive, was sentenced to 120 hours unpaid work.
