Mills said he acted in self-defence and denied hitting Mr Hutchinson with a bottle. Mr Hutchinson, a university student, suffered a cut which required four stitches.
Judge Gareth Hawkesworth adjourned sentencing to July 8 for a pre sentence report. He released Mills on conditional bail but told him all the court sentencing options would be open.
