Lout who caused rammy at house is warned he may face jail
A yob turned up at a family’s home to hurl abuse at boy of 14 and his sister.
John Bain, 38, also bombarded their mum with messages after sparking a row in their street.
He repeatedly made menacing remarks to the lad, including slurs about disability, and hitting his sister on the head after lobbing bags and clothing.
At Paisley Sheriff Court, Bain admitted acting in a threatening or abusive manner after turning up at their house.
Sheriff Craig Harris released the thug, but warned he had not decided if he would be spared jail.
He said: “Given the nature of the charges to which you have pled and your previous convictions, I am going to call for background reports.
“On the next occasion, the court can make a decision on how best to deal with you. I am prepared to allow your bail to be continued.”
Bain caused the rammy at the property near Barrhead town centre on August 13.
He began bawling and swearing and gesticulating in an abusive manner after he turned up at the home.
The court heard he also sent abusive messages electronically to the mum and her daughter.
He pled guilty to culpably, wilfully and recklessly throwing a jacket and bags at her, hitting her on the head.
Sheriff Harris called for reports and warned Bain to comply with social workers or face a prison stint. He also ordered a curfew assessment. Bain, of Barlia Drive, Glasgow, will return to court on October 12.
