A Deacon Blue fan flew into a violent rage and punched a cabbie 12 times during a brawl after a gig.
Steven Beattie riled a taxi driver who waited more than 20 minutes for the 50-year-old and his partner outside McDonald’s on Inverurie Road in Aberdeen.
The pair, who were at the P&J Live on October 13 last year, demanded a long stop at the fast food branch leading the driver to push for payment.
But Beattie became aggressive and began throwing punches at the cabbie, reports the Press and Journal.
The engineering firm director proceeded to grab a fire extinguisher from the restaurant and smash the vehicle.
Aberdeen Sheriff Court heard how the driver saw Beattie running towards him shouting "come on then, come on then!"
Beattie punched the driver 12 times to the head, leading him to fall to the ground.
Fiscal depute Peter Finnon told the court the accused approached the vehicle shouting "come on, you f****** b******, I’ll have you now" after leaving McDonald's.
The couple went back inside the restaurant and Beattie was arrested a short time later.
His victim was left with pain and swelling to his head and minor pain to his elbow after the windscreen smashed.
Beattie, of Kemnay, near aberdeen, pleaded guilty to charges of assault to injury and behaving in a threatening or abusive manner.
Defence agent Gregor Kelly said Beattie, a first offender, had already paid the taxi driver just over £4,600 to cover the damage and loss of earnings.
He said Beattie was “mortified to find himself in court for such a serious matter”.
He was ordered to pay a fine of £740.
