Man jailed after a series of bust-ups with his ex
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.”
