A DAD who went on a drunken rampage after becoming upset at family issues has been spared jail.

George Brewis had been sober for three years when he attacked two bouncers at AXM nightclub on Glassford Street.

Glasgow Sheriff Court heard family problems caused the 41-year-old to relapse and go out boozing with a friend.

On August 28, 2016, Brewis and his friend left AXM around 2.20am but immediately returned.

When bouncers allowed Brewis's friend to enter but refused him, he charged at them to try and push back in.

They stopped him and Brewis grabbed one bouncer by the genitals and squeezed them.

Brewis was placed on the ground in an attempt to restrain him when he tried to bite a second bouncer.

His defence lawyer told the court Brewis is a full time dad to a seven-year-old daughter and 19-month-old twins, one of whom has Down's syndrome.

Brewis, of Monifieth Avenue, Cardonald, also has children from a previous relationship and had been placed on a community payback order in 2014 for assaulting a previous partner.

Sheriff Daniel Kelly placed Brewer on a community payback order with supervision for 12 months.

He must also carry out 200 hours of unpaid work within nine months.
