A DISPUTE over an alcoholic drink being consumed by the wrong person resulted in a glass attack in a popular Inverness nightspot.
The row erupted in Revolution Bar in Inverness’s Church Street on November 9, 2019 as 19-year-old Recardo Colbridge, also known as Ricardo Fraiser, of Dunachton Road, Inverness was with friends.
Inverness Sheriff Court was told that another group were socialising and dancing nearby.
Fiscal depute Alex Swain said there was an exchange of words when one of Colbridge’s party was accused of drinking a drink belonging to the other group.
Ms Swain said there was a commotion and Colbridge struck his victim “at least three times to the head with a glass which smashed”.
Hospital examination revealed wounds to the man’s cheeks and back of his head. Steristrips and eight stitches were applied.
Colbridge, who was not present in the court room, admitted assault to severe injury and sentence was deferred until June 28 for a background report.
Sheriff Sara Matheson also called for a restriction of liberty order assessment to be undertaken.
