A man who was ejected from a Norwich nightclub after falling asleep threw a bottle of beer over the owner, a court heard.
Langaelihle Sibandan, 22, was removed from Vudu nightclub on Prince of Wales Road on October 17 after nodding off.
Norwich Magistrates Court heard became aggressive outside, calling the owner a “pussy” and moving as if to box him.
Josephine Jones, prosecuting, said he slapped the owner in the face before pulling a bottle of beer from his clothing and throwing it over him.
Sibandan was arrested and found to have cannabis resin on him.
He admitted being drunk and disorderly and possessing a controlled drug of class B.
Andrew Spence, for Sibandan, of Broom Close, Taverham, said he accepted falling asleep and throwing alcohol but not slapping the nightclub owner.
He said the defendant, who is currently sofa surfing, had been drinking to excess and was “remorseful”.
Sibandan was fined £60, with £50 compensation to the victim, a £30 victim surcharge and £50.
