A THUG who spat at a nightclub bouncer after being removed due to her drunken state has been handed a prison sentence.

Yvonne Doris was at AXM Glasgow on Glassford Street on December 20, 2019, when she carried out the “disgusting” act.

The 41-year-old appeared from custody for sentencing at Glasgow Sheriff Court after previously pleading guilty to assaulting Craig Paterson, by spitting on him.

The prosecutor said: “The witness, who was a member of security staff, had cause to eject the accused from within due to her level of intoxication.

“He escorted her from the bar to the main door and was ushering her from the smoking area when she turned to face him and spat on him.

“The spittle landed on the side of his face. Another security staff member observed this. They restrained her until the arrival of police.”

Two cops on patrol in the city centre attended and spotted Doris being restrained by the bouncers.

After obtaining details, she was arrested and cautioned and charged.

She was taken to a police station and released for a report to be sent to the procurator fiscal.

Her lawyer told the court: “It’s disgusting behaviour and that’s accepted. It does predate the pandemic.

“She appears from custody because she was sentenced to 23 months for another matter – primarily domestic.”

Sheriff Mark McGuire replied: “That resolves any disposal. I don’t think I have got any other option but to impose a custodial sentence, but I will impose a sentence that will not affect her earliest liberation date.”

Doris’ solicitor added that his client has been working with addiction and mental health services.

The sheriff told her: “As your solicitor said, it is a disgusting offence. Given your current status, I can’t impose a community-based disposal.”

Doris, of Auldhouse, in the Southside of the city, was sentenced to 162 days in prison, which will be served concurrently with her current sentence.
