Ex-Dubai resident was handed a three month jail sentence after being found guilty of assault by the Dubai Criminal Court.

The National reports, the 22-year-old British citizen, Asa Hutchinson, has been sentenced to jail for her part in a restaurant fight that left a computer executive with a broken nose.

The row began after Hutchinson and a group of friends took a selfie with executive asleep on a sofa at a restaurant in Al Fattan Currency House in DIFC. 

The businessman woke up after one of the group slapped him in the face, the newspaper reported.

The report also adds that a Dubai Police lieutenant said that CCTV from the venue showed the Swedish man sleeping as the group approached him.

A medical report revealed that the victim suffered a broken nose, finger and toe as well as scratches and bruises and was left with a 1% permanent disability as a result of an injury to his left nostril.
