Victim ‘insulted dad’

Have your say

A MAN suffered “catastrophic” injuries in an assault after his attacker asked him why he had insulted his father, the High Court in Edinburgh was told.

Craig Whyte, 22, was drinking at Benjamin Hammond’s home with others when Hammond, 23, was told he had drunk his beer and called his father an insulting name.

Sentence on Hammond was deferred for a background report.
