A jilted wife attacked her love rat husband’s mistress at a school after she discovered that he was cheating on her.
Lauren Gray, 38, punched fellow mum Amanda Boylan in the face and grabbed her by the hair after telling her "I want a word with you".
Miss Boylan was left with a bloody nose following the attack in Paisley, near Glasgow, the Daily Record reports.
Gray, who admitted assaulting her love rival, and her husband, who was not named in court, are now "working through" their issues following his affair with Miss Boylan.
The details emerged when Gray appeared in the dock at Paisley Sheriff Court to go on trial over the assault.
She pleaded guilty to assaulting Miss Boylan by punching her on the head and grabbing her by the hair.
Procurator Fiscal Depute Saud Ul-Hassan said the attack took place at around 3pm on January 30 while both Gray and Miss Boylan were at a school in the town’s Blackstoun Road.
The prosecutor said: "Miss Boylan heard the accused behind her shouting, ‘I want a word with you’.
"Miss Boylan ignored the accused and walked in to the gates of the school.

"She started walking back to her car.
"The accused and Miss Boylan then exchanged words about an allegation involving the witness and the accused’s husband.
"The accused punched her in the face and seized her by the hair then made off in her motor vehicle."
Miss Boylan was left nursing a bloody nose because of the attack and the police were contacted.
The court heard the assault was captured on CCTV, but the footage was not shown in court, and Gray was tracked down at her home and charged with assault.
Defence solicitor David Nicholson said: "There is a background to this in so far as there was an infidelity between Mrs Gray’s husband and the complainer.
"This was the first coming together between her and the complainer and tempers and emotions were high.
"There was an exchange and she reacted in this manner – it was spontaneous.
"Emotions were high and she felt significantly wronged. She apologises for her conduct.
"She and her husband and now working through the issues that led to this particular incident."
Sheriff Colin Pettigrew fined Gray £400 for the offence and ordered her to pay the fine at the rate of £40 every four weeks.
