A prisoner at HMP Inverness has been jailed for 12 months for an assault.

Campbell Freeman (56) has been remanded since the incident in the city’s Juniper Gardens in September.

He appeared and pleaded guilty before Sheriff Margaret Neilson at Inverness Sheriff Court where the story unfolded.

Fiscal Depute Robert Weir said Freeman’s victim Leo Allan heard the front door opening and found Freeman in the hallway.

An argument ensued and the pair ended up on grass outside, where Freeman struck Mr Allan on the shoulder with a rubber mallet.

George Mathers, defending, said the row began when Freeman’s partner received unpleasant and abusive texts from Mr Allan.

Sheriff Neilson jailed Freeman for a year backdated to September 2, when he was remanded.
