Gala at­tack

Ayrshire Post - - NEWS -

A gala day at­tack landed a man with a £ 270 fine.

Martin John­ston, 22, ad­mit­ted as­sault­ing Dean Neil dur­ing the com­mu­nity event at Dron­gan Pri­mary School on Au­gust 6 last year.

Ayr Sher­iff Court heard how both men had been drink­ing, and the at­tack was sparked by al­leged com­ments made by Neil to­wards the ac­cused’s girl­friend.

A not guilty plea to a sec­ond charge of re­peat­edly kick­ing Neil on the body to his se­vere in­jury was ac­cepted by pros­e­cu­tors.

Daniel Wil­son, 22, had ap­peared as a co- ac­cused on the sec­ond charge but walked free from the dock as his not guilty plea was also ac­cepted.

John­ston, of Bar­bieston Av­enue in Dron­gan, must pay his £ 270 fine by Novem­ber 2 this year.
