A racist lout abused a member of security at a Peter Powers show.

Glasgow Sheriff Court heard that Mr Singh engaged in conversation with Docherty.

Docherty became agitated and argumentative with him.

He went on to ask the security member if he was from India or Pakistan.

Docherty walked away from Mr Singh and went outside.

Due to Docherty being aggressive, another security guard called for Mr Singh to return and assist.

He was heard to say words similar to: “You can’t tell me what to do you p*** b******.”

Docherty, of Bishopbriggs, East Dunbartonshire, was later arrested.

He pleaded guilty to behaving in a racially aggravated manner towards Mr Singh.

Brian Cooney, defending, told the court: “He offers his apologies to the victim in this case.

“This was behaviour that is completely and utterly unacceptable.

“He is ashamed to have acted in this manner.”

Sheriff Mark McGuire put Docherty under 18 months supervision and alcohol counselling.

He was also ordered to pay Mr Singh £200 compensation.

The sheriff said: “Your conduct was disgraceful - Mr Singh was simply trying to do his job.

“He should not be subjected to racist abuse from you.”
