Man(29) ver­bally abused for­mer part­ner

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS -

An east Perthshire man fired a ver­bal broad­side at his ex­part­ner just days af­ter she had ended their eight-year re­la­tion­ship.

Twenty-nine-year-old Ross Thom­son, of Hat­ton Place, Rat­tray, had called at her home at Bur­rell Place, Wood­side, un­in­vited, to col­lect his be­long­ings.

But they had an ar­gu­ment and he called her “a fat, ugly b ***** d” and “a whore.”

She be­came up­set and pushed him to­wards the door to try and get him to leave.

But he started bang­ing on the door and at­tempted to force his way in.

He was spot­ted by a neigh­bour who had “con­cerns” for the woman’s safety and called the po­lice.

The in­ci­dent led to him be­ing fined £675 at Perth Sher­iff Court af­ter he ad­mit­ted re­peat­edly shout­ing and swear­ing at his ex-girl­friend on Au­gust 2.

Solic­i­tor Pauline Culler­ton said: “It would be fair to say this was a re­la­tion­ship which had been par­tic­u­larly volatile dur­ing the time they were to­gether.

“I think both par­ties were giv­ing as good as they got, ver­bally.”

Thom­son will pay the fine at the rate of £100 a month.
