    A 58-year-old man has been fined and ordered to carry out community work, after punching a Dunedin waitress because she didn't put gravy on his meal

    A 58-year-old man has been fined and ordered to carry out community work, after punching a Dunedin waitress because she didn't put gravy on his meal


    Arthur Duncan Mathieson was given the gravy on the side instead, so he hit the waitress who served him, twice.

    He's pleaded guilty to assaulting a female in the Dunedin District Court.

    The Otago Daily Times reports his application for name suppression was denied.

    The attack could have warranted a short prison term, but Mathieson was instead sentenced to 100 hours' community work and ordered to pay the victim 500 dollars.

    The court heard the waitress has quit her job as a result of the attack, which has left her scared.
