A man threw three kitchen knives at his wife during a domestic incident, Londonderry Magistrate's Court has heard.
Neil Nolan, from Whitethorn Drive in Currynierin, also admitted damaging furniture and fittings during the incident in April.
District Judge Jim McFarland heard that Nolan, who was heavily intoxicated, missed his wife with the knives.
Nolan was given a three-month jail sentence suspended for two years.
Mr McFarland told Nolan that his employment prospects would be extremely limited because of his actions.
