Text pest told to stay away from his ex

Ayrshire Post - - News -

A de­mand­ing ex bom­barded his for­mer girl­friend with mes­sages, or­der­ing her to chauf­feur him around.

At 3.30am, Ryan Shaw fired off de­mands to Lisa Baird that she drive to Muirkirk and ferry him to Ayr. She even­tu­ally gave in.

The 28- year- old harassed her be­tween Fe­bru­ary 5 and 18, Ayr Sher­iff Court heard last week.

For a pe­riod Shaw, of Well­wood Street, Muirkirk, was blocked from con­tact­ing Ms Baird.

De­pute fis­cal Lindzi Bayne said: “She felt re­lieved there was no con­tact.”

But Shaw man­aged to get through again by phone.

He also sent her a Face­book mes­sage. She did not re­ply but he per­sisted with an­other mes­sage.

Ap­pear­ing at Ayr Sher­iff Court last week, Shaw ad­mit­ted con­tact­ing her through texts, Face­book and tele­phone calls and de­mand­ing to be col­lected and driven to dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions in South Ayr­shire.

He also pled guilty to shout­ing, swear­ing, threat­en­ing to harm her and threat­en­ing to as­sault po­lice of­fi­cers with a weapon.

Solic­i­tor Glenn Davis said his client had been tak­ing street Val­ium and his be­hav­iour was “poor” dur­ing that time.

The court im­posed an or­der bar­ring him from go­ing near Ms Baird for two years.

Shaw must also take part in the Cale­do­nian Project do­mes­tic abuse pro­gramme and un­dergo two years of com­mu­nity su­per­vi­sion.
