A MAN is facing jail after slapping a passer-by with a fish.
Alan Bennie, 20, was walking through a park when he was approached by assailant David Evans, who was carrying a fish.
Neil MacGregor, prosecuting, told Falkirk Sheriff Court that the incident happened in Zetland Park in Grangemouth, Stirlingshire, at about 8.30pm in May this year.
Mr MacGregor said: "The accused asked the complainer 'Do you want to kiss my fish?'
"Mr Bennie made no reply and walked on, at which point the accused said: 'You answer me next time I ask you to kiss a fish', and slapped him round the face with it."
The attack caused reddening and left fish scales sticking to the victim's cheek. Police were called and apprehended Evans nearby. He admitted the offence.
Evans, 22, of Strowan Road, Grangemouth, pleaded guilty yesterday to assaulting Mr Bennie with the fish to his injury.
