An Aberdeen man smashed a pint glass over his father’s head when a row broke out after a family funeral.
Dylan Thomson, of Polo Gardens in Bucksburn, had been drinking at a wake on Wednesday, October 16.
Fiscal depute, Lynne Macvicor, told Aberdeen Sheriff Court yesterday that the 19-year-old had attended a relative’s funeral with his father and his father’s partner before he began drinking at the wake.
The older man left the gathering before 7pm but returned at around 9pm to collect his son.
When leaving the pub, the teenager took a pint glass into the car and sat in the back seat. An argument then broke out between him and his father, who was in the passenger seat.
Thomson lunged forward and hit his did on the back of the head numerous times while travelling on Stoneywood Road.
When they got home to Polo Gardens there was a “struggle” between the pair until Thomson smashed the pint glass over the left side of his dad’s head.
The 19-year-old was arrested and later entered a guilty plea.
Defence agent, Iain MgGregor, said his client suffered from mental health issues and explained that the glass involved was a “safety glass” which many pubs now use.
Sheriff Philip Mann deferred sentencing until August to obtain criminal justice social work reports.
