SCALES OF JUS­TICE Drunken teenager caused havoc in gym

Evening Times - - NEWS -

A TEENAGER who caused havoc in a gym af­ter drink­ing al­most two bot­tles of wine has been sen­tenced to un­paid work.

At Glas­gow Sheriff Court, Marco McDade ad­mit­ted kicking off in Xer­cise4Less near Sauchiehall Street on July 21.

The fis­cal de­pute told the court that the 19-year-old was asked by the gym work­ers why he was there. The ac­cused turned nasty and threat­ened: “Do you want a bul­let through your skull? Come out­side and I’ll stab you.”

On his way out, McDade branded two of the em­ploy­ees “P**i b*****ds”.

His de­fence lawyer ex­plained that al­co­hol played a large part. She stated that af­ter drink­ing one-and-a-half bot­tles of wine, the ac­cused “had no busi­ness go­ing into a gym in that state”.

The teen also pleaded guilty to los­ing his rag at the Coun­cil for Home­less Young Peo­ple youth hos­tel in Wilton Street on Oc­to­ber 1 this year. McDade, who had been liv­ing within the sup­ported ac­com­mo­da­tion, turned up in­tox­i­cated. He be­came ag­gres­sive and be­gan to shout and swear at two sup­port work­ers. He threat­ened: “I’m go­ing to get you done in.” The po­lice were called when the ac­cused re­fused to leave.

McDade was sen­tenced to a CPO with su­per­vi­sion for 12 months and 120 hours of un­paid work. He was also handed a Restric­tion of Lib­erty Or­der, and will have to re­main in­doors be­tween 10pm-7am for two months.
