Struggle outside Inverness lap dancing club ends in court
A WAITER who refused to leave Private Eyes then struggled with police officers in the street.
Glen Donoghue (25) of Anderson Street, Inverness, was injured as the disturbance spilled on to Academy Street on December 13 last year.
With three officers dealing with him, as a result of the struggle Donoghue banged his head on the pavement and required to be treated in Raigmore Hospital.
Even after this however he continued to behave in a disorderly manner while in a police vehicle en route to detention.
Fiscal depute Martina Eastwood said that police had had to place him in leg restraints as he lashed out with his legs following his arrest.
Defence solicitor John MacColl said: “He remembers nothing about what happened.
“He had a fair bit to drink but he says he normally remembers events.
“He does not take drugs but he can’t exclude that his drink may have been spiked. He accepts his behaviour was entirely unacceptable.”
Donoghue was fined a total of £540 by Sheriff Eilidh Macdonald after admitting a breach of the peace and resisting arrest.
