In the News 1972…
Three jailed for city pub Fracas.
Three men were jailed at the High Court in Edinburgh today after a fight in a Glasgow city centre public house which led to a barmaid being permanently disfigured. Anthony Newlands (31) of no fixed address, was jailed for five years, and Andrew Jasper (36), c/o 198 North Woodside Road, Glasgow, and Robert McCann (21), of 29 Dorset Street, Anderston got three months each.
Lord Cameron told Newlands “You have been convicted of an extremely serious assault upon an unfortunate woman who apparently intervened to stop a fight and disturbance which had been initiated by you and your companions.” He said Newlands was given to violence and had 14 previous convictions.
Newlands alone was charged with slapping Walter Munn on the face in the Berkeley Bar, Argyle Street, on November 20. All three were accused of fighting in the bar, and throwing tumblers, bottles and chairs. All three were also charged with assaulting barmaid Mary Bauge by hitting her on the face with a bottle to her severe injury and permanent disfigurement, and assaulting Daniel Malone by hitting him with a chair.
Advocate-depute W. I. Stewart, Q.C., said all three entered the bar about 6 o’clock, Newlands had previously been told not to return and the barmaid, Mr Munn, told him they were not to be served. They left but returned about two hours later and started a fight.
The barmaid tried to stop this when she was hit with a bottle. A large cut on the face needed 20 stitches, while several stitches also had to be inserted on her forehead.
