Donnie Fraser, a resident of Peterhead, has been issued with a 12-month football banning order and been ordered to pay East Stirling's Jordan Tapping - who was substituted late in the game - £300 in compensation.
Sheriff Stirling took into account the fact that Fraser, a regular attendee at Balmoor stadium, admitted his guilt immediately after his arrest earlier this week.
Although the football banning order is for a period of a year, the Scottish Professional Football League may yet impose a lifetime ban once their own probe has been concluded.
Peterhead, who unreservedly condemned the weekend incident, had organised a joint-demonstration with Show Racism the Red card ahead of Tuesday night's 3-1 win over Alloa Athletic.
