AN AYR woman who battered her victim with a glass bottle will wear a tag for six months.

Lynette Cooper of Annpit Road also assaulted a police officer after what was described as an “alcohol fuelled night” on March 29 last year.

Depute Fiscal Ed Sheeran told Ayr Sheriff Court Cooper, 42, became involved in the incident whilst drinking with friends, one of which was a woman also accused in the disturbance.

Mr Sheeran said: “They made way to the home address. They both consumed alcohol. At around 9pm the accused became irate.

“She picked up a bottle of Southern Comfort and swung it towards Miss McGregor saying ‘that’s my best pal!’ This caused a laceration to her eyebrow.”

Cooper then ran off, leaving her victim bleeding. The injury was treated later and no stitches were required but the cut was mended with glue.

Cooper was later traced by police who tried to apprehend her for the incident but she quickly became aggressive and assaulted one of the officers.

Mr Sheeran added: “While she was being tried the accused became volatile. She threw a punch at one of the officers.”

The thug’s solicitor Mr Tony Currie told the court: “It was an alcohol fuelled night and an alcohol fuelled event. She has a significant degree of regret. There are issues with alcohol with Miss Cooper over a significant period of time. She is candid enough to admit she has problems and alcohol issues.”

Mr Currie continued to tell the court his client has been out of trouble for some time and added “there was never any challenge to this assault”.

Sheriff Scott Pattison sentenced Cooper to a Restriction of Liberty Order where she can’t leave her home between 7pm and 7am.

The sheriff told her: “If you’re found outside your house outside these hours you’ll be brought back and you’ll be sentenced to prison.”
