Grant Young (33) assaulted a man by throwing a can at him and biting him.
Young admitted the offence he committed at his 7 River Street, Bainsford home on July 28 last year.
His excuses for missing subsequent court appointments included his going back to the Cumbernauld area to give his partner a break and taking his four-month-old baby to hospital for treatment.
Sheriff Craig Caldwell said: “I’m not at all impressed by your failure to engage with this process. If the reports are not available the next time your girlfriend will be getting a longer break from you because you will be going to custody.”
Sentence was deferred until March 14 for social work reports.
