Simon Hutchison was defending Denise Kelly (28) at Falkirk Sheriff Court last Thursday after she admitted hitting a woman in Newmarket Street, Falkirk, on May 18.
Mr Hutchison said: “This is the least serious assault I have ever heard of. She was having an argument with her boyfriend which was witnessed by two undercover police officers. She swung a punch at her boyfriend and this woman got in the way.”
The victim refused to give a statement.
Sheriff John Mundy agreed with Mr Hutchison and admonished Kelly, Flat 2, 9 Paton Drive, Larbert.
