Two bouncers and a passer by were attacked by a man who was asked to leave Vienna’s nightclub in Paisley.
The customer lashed out at a reveller inside the venue on New Street around 2am on Christmas Eve.
After he was ejected, he proceeded to grab one of the bouncers by the throat. The other avoided punches that were being thrown.
Police are appealing for witnesses and describe the attacker as being aged around 50-years-old.
The man was with a woman, thought to be his partner.
