NewYear incellsfor tiradeat partner
A New Year reveller proved an unwelcome ‘first foot’ when he turned up at his partner’s home in the early hours and subjected her to a foul-mouthed tirade.
Fifty-two-year-old Jeremy Higgins, of Union Street, Blairgowrie, started screaming and shouting at his girlfriend.
The police were called because of his behaviour and officers could hear him shouting and swearing when she was on the phone to them.
The accused was traced nearby and appeared in the dock at Perth Sheriff Court after spending the rest of the New Year festive period in police cells.
Higgins was ordered to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work in the next three months after he admitted acting aggressively towards his partner at a house in Sidlaw Crescent, Coupar Angus, on January 1, 2018.
Part of the charge which alleged that he repeatedly made threats to the female was deleted.
The court heard that he had been at the property about 4pm.
He had been drinking and returned to the address after visiting other people about 12.50am.
His partner “noticed a change in his behaviour” and he started shouting at her and behaving aggressively.
A solicitor said the accused was hopeful that the relationship would continue.
