Bankcus­tomer abused­staff

Perthshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

A Perth bank cus­tomer was un­happy with the re­sponse he re­ceived to ques­tions re­lat­ing to trans­ac­tions on his ac­count.

And he be­gan to shout at staff, telling one as­sis­tant:“You think you’re the big man.”

Thirty-three-year-old David Ba­con, of Lums­den Cres­cent, Al­mond­bank, was asked to leave and com­plied.

But the po­lice were con­tacted and he was later traced.

His bank bal­ance was left £150 lighter when he was fined that amount at Perth Sher­iff Court.

He ad­mit­ted shout­ing at staff in the High Street branch of Bar­clay’s Bank on Jan­uary 16.

A not guilty plea was ac­cepted to a sec­ond charge of as­sault­ing Jamie Vin­cent by seiz­ing hold of his arm.

De­pute fis­cal Carol Whyte said the in­ci­dent took place about 2pm.

Solic­i­tor Billy Somerville con­ceded that his client did have a crim­i­nal record but he had stayed out of trouble for a con­sid­er­able pe­riod.

The penalty will be paid at £15 a fort­night.
