NewYear in­cells­for tiradeat part­ner

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS -

A New Year rev­eller proved an un­wel­come ‘first foot’ when he turned up at his part­ner’s home in the early hours and sub­jected her to a foul-mouthed tirade.

Fifty-two-year-old Jeremy Hig­gins, of Union Street, Blair­gowrie, started scream­ing and shout­ing at his girl­friend.

The po­lice were called be­cause of his be­hav­iour and of­fi­cers could hear him shout­ing and swear­ing when she was on the phone to them.

The ac­cused was traced nearby and ap­peared in the dock at Perth Sher­iff Court after spend­ing the rest of the New Year fes­tive pe­riod in po­lice cells.

Hig­gins was or­dered to carry out 100 hours of un­paid work in the next three months after he ad­mit­ted act­ing ag­gres­sively to­wards his part­ner at a house in Sid­law Cres­cent, Coupar An­gus, on Jan­uary 1, 2018.

Part of the charge which al­leged that he re­peat­edly made threats to the fe­male was deleted.

The court heard that he had been at the prop­erty about 4pm.

He had been drink­ing and re­turned to the ad­dress after vis­it­ing other peo­ple about 12.50am.

His part­ner “no­ticed a change in his be­hav­iour” and he started shout­ing at her and be­hav­ing ag­gres­sively.

A so­lic­i­tor said the ac­cused was hope­ful that the re­la­tion­ship would con­tinue.
