Woman as­saulted in drunken fight

The Oban Times - - News -

A FORT Wil­liam man slapped a 56-year- old woman twice in a drunken ar­gu­ment.

Igors Volonovs, of Pol­mona, Clag­gan, ad­mit­ted strik­ing the woman on the head on Au­gust 29 this year, when he ap­peared at Fort Wil­liam Sher­iff Court on Tues­day.

De­fence so­lic­i­tor Hamish Mel­rose said the 29-year- old Lat­vian had acted un­der provo­ca­tion af­ter the woman in­sulted his part­ner.

Sher­iff David Young ac­cepted Volon­vos had been pro­voked and gave him a re­duced fine of £180, say­ing: ‘How­ever you look at it this was an as­sault of a 56-year- old woman. I know there had been an ar­gu­ment but this doesn’t jus­tify what you did.’
