Woman who poured can of lager on mate at Invergordon address is fined £245


An altercation between two women at an Invergordon address ended with a can of lager being poured over the other.

The incident involving Danielle Duncan took place in Mains Avenue, Invergordon on October 27 last year.

On Monday, Duncan, 32, admitted an assault charge in Tain Sheriff’s Court.

The prosecution says she attacked the other woman by throwing the contents of an alcohol can at her and grappled with her.

Tax MP Naomi Duffy-Welsh said Duncan was under the influence of alcohol at the time.

She said: ‘The altercation took place at 3.45pm and the police responded at 4.10pm.

“The accused was subsequently arrested and taken to Burnett Road Police Station in Inverness.”

Defense agent Rory Gowans said his client, who is unemployed and on Universal Credit, has since moved from Invergordon to Findowrie Street in Dundee.

He said: “She made the conscious decision to move to Dundee to get away from her demons and get a fresh start. She started weekly counseling sessions. Alcohol appears to have been the cause of this incident.

The attorney said Duncan had no memory of the assault.

“It’s practically a blank page,” he said. “She remembers some issues with the complainant, but not what they were.”

Sheriff Gary Aitken fined Duncan £225 plus a victim fine surcharge of £20.
