The Scotsman reports on a fine imposed on a businessman who subjected staff and guests to racist abuse at Gleneagles golf course after being refused service at the hotel bar.
Stefan Hutter, 56, became angry and mouthed off at staff and guests after he was refused service at the bar because of his drunken state.
Hutter was accused of “sounding off” at the concierge, Indonesian national Stephen Seba, before directing his ire at Tunisian Houssem Belabed as he ushered guests from the bar.
Hutter was said to have shouted at Belabed that “he hated Muslims and ‘f***ing Arabs’.”
Hutter also abused hotel guests Naim Dehgany and Michael Arshagouni.
Mr Hutter admitted three charges of acting in a threatening or abusive manner at Gleneagles on 20 August at Perth Sherriff Court.
The court heard that Hutter had taken painkillers and had no recollection of the incident.
He was fined £1,600 after telling the court he could cover any fine with his credit card.
