`A man has been given a deferred sentence by an Aberdeen sheriff after he admitted assaulting a woman by tipping a basin of vomit over her head.
James Russell, a 40-year-old father of three, said that he had been drinking heavily when the vomit incident occurred. [..]
Sentencing was deferred until next March to allow him to demonstrate good behaviour in the intervening period. Good behaviour, in this case, is thought to include not tipping basins of vomit over anybody else’s heads.’
