Anthony Chambers jailed for 'reprehensible' attack

A man has been jailed for 44 months for a brutal attack that left his victim needing facial surgery.

Anthony Chambers, 39, punched and stamped on Quinten McGarrie in Ayr, on 15 February, after a nightclub row.

Eight titanium plates were later inserted into the victim's face to repair the damage Chambers inflicted.

Judge Lord Turnbull told Chambers, who admitted the assault: "You used a wholly unnecessary and reprehensible level of violence."

The High Court in Glasgow heard how the two men had argued earlier in a nightclub and had decided to fight outside.

Mr McGarrie was knocked to the ground with a punch after a scuffle with Chambers.

The court heard that Mr McGarrie was punched 11 times, stamped on six times and kicked twice during the brutal assault which lasted only three minutes.

He was later found by a passer-by and taken to Ayr Hospital where he was treated for facial fractures.

The court heard he may have to undergo another operation and has been left with scarring and has been unable to work since the incident.

The court heard that Chambers, who has previous convictions for assault, was captured on CCTV carrying out the attack.
