Lennox Herald - - NEWS -

A Bon­hill man was jailed for a string of of­fences in­volv­ing fights with his for­mer part­ner.

Dy­lanTweedie, 24, was told that he had“reached the end of the line” be­fore be­ing handed a six-month jail term at Dum­bar­ton Sher­iff Court last week.

The court heard that Tweedie was ar­rested twice for get­ting into vi­o­lent ar­gu­ments with the woman within a flat on Main Street in Bon­hill.

On two sep­a­rate oc­ca­sions, of­fi­cers were called out to find the pair “shout­ing, bawl­ing and throw­ing punches”at one an­other.

Dur­ing the first in­ci­dent on May 9 last year, po­lice could hear shout­ing com­ing from the prop­erty while stand­ing on the street.

Tweedie, of Lady­ton Es­tate, was in the dock last week where he ad­mit­ted be­hav­ing in a threat­en­ing or abu­sive man­ner by shout­ing, swear­ing, act­ing in an ag­gres­sive man­ner, ut­ter­ing threats of vi­o­lence and en­gag­ing in a fight.

The court heard that the po­lice were made aware of the on­go­ing in­ci­dent at around 9pm. De­pute fis­cal Sarah Heal­ing told the court: “When they en­tered they could hear shout­ing and bawl­ing com­ing from the flat.

“They made their way to the close and the shout­ing con­tin­ued.

“A male voice and a fe­male voice were in­volved.

“Po­lice of­fi­cers ar­rived at the top floor and they found that the front door of the flat was wide open.

“The dis­tur­bance was con­tin­u­ing within.

“They ob­served the ac­cused and a fe­male within the prop­erty shout­ing and swear­ing at each other.

“They were also throw­ing punches and she was shout­ing that she was go­ing to kill him and he was shout­ing telling her to shut up and call­ing her a “f*****g b***h”.

In an­other in­ci­dent on May 9 this year, po­lice were called back to the Main Street flat – this time at 2.25am.

How­ever, this time Tweedie be­gan to be­have in an ag­gres­sive man­ner to­wards the of­fi­cers.

He was then ar­rested and re­moved from the prop­erty.Tweedie ad­mit­ted be­hav­ing in a threat­en­ing man­ner by shout­ing and swear­ing while within a po­lice ve­hi­cle on route to Cly­de­bank Po­lice of­fice.

He also ad­mit­ted re­sist­ing three po­lice of­fi­cers while in ex­e­cu­tion of their duty by tens­ing his arms and pulling away from them.

While on bail for the of­fence on Fe­bru­ary 9, Tweedie got him­self in fur­ther trou­ble, set­ting fire to a bin within a shed in O’Hare in Bon­hill.

While in court last week, he also ad­mit­ted set­ting fire to a bin on July 29 which took ef­fect and caused £150 of dam­age.

De­fend­ing, Scott Adair saidTweedie was no longer in a re­la­tion­ship with the woman but they were still in con­tact.

He said:“He is a per­son who clearly needs struc­ture. He doesn’t have his trou­bles to seek in terms of his ad­dic­tion and men­tal health is­sues.

“He feels a com­mu­nity pay­back or­der would be of ben­e­fit to him and the pub­lic.”

Sen­tenc­ingTweedie to a six month cus­to­dial sen­tence, Sher­iff John Hamil­ton said:“You have reached the end of the line.”
