Compensation order after woman ejected from party during row about size of guest’s manhood

A Scottish party host has been ordered to pay £1,500 compensation to a woman he hurled down a flight of stairs after a heated row about a guest’s manhood. Julie Jamieson was left severely injured after being thrown out of the party when an argument about the size of one of the reveller’s private parts got out of hand.

Jonathan Wales, 28, grabbed Miss Jamieson and struggled with her until she toppled down a full flight of stairs and broke her wrist on landing. Perth Sheriff Court was told that it was bawdy banter between rival groups of women which sparked the confrontation and led to a physical brawl.

Wales was ordered to pay his victim and told to carry out 240 hours unpaid work as part of a community payback order on Tuesday. Sheriff Lindsay Foulis told Wales: “I really question whether there was any need for you to get involved, or certainly not to the extent which you did. But I do accept the injury sustained by the complainer was probably not anticipated and was a consequence of a struggle which took place outside.”

Depute fiscal Gavin Letford told the court Wales ended up grabbing hold of Miss Jamieson and shoving her out of the flat and on to the landing in the close. “As she fell down the stairs she fell on to her wrist and felt it buckle under her body,” he said The court heard Miss Jamieson was taken to hospital and required surgery on her broken wrist. Wales admitted assaulting and severely injuring Julie Jamieson during the fight at the party in Dundee.
