Defence agent John McLoone said: “As heard in the Crown narrative, there was a confrontation between Mr Wilson and the complainer.
“It would appear to be a situation he perceived certain aggression towards him and he felt was quite threatening.”
He added: “His reaction to that was disproportionate.”
Sheriff Morag McLaughlin jailed Wilson, a prisoner of HMP Perth, for 15 months.
