The Daily Record is reporting that a teacher’s nose was broken when he was head-butted by a pupil at a school prom.
Ryan Proudler, 19, attacked the man after drink-fuelled violence flared during the event at a luxury hotel.
Victim Jamie McIntyre had tried to defuse a row between students.
A court heard pupils aged 18 had been allowed to buy alcohol for their own consumption but some started buying drinks for younger revellers.
A source said: “Things went downhill from there.
“Trouble started and a couple of boys went outside to fight. The accused was trying to stop it.
“Teachers came out and Proudler turned round and head-butted one of them, breaking his nose.
“Police were called and the pupil was charged with assault. The teacher needed hospital treatment.”
The prom, for St Margaret’s Academy in Livingston, was held at the four-star Houstoun House Hotel in Uphall…
Proudler, who was 17 at the time, was charged and the case called at Livingston Sheriff Court…
General approaches to alcohol being served at school proms, even to those over 18?
