Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE -

A man has been or­dered to carry out un­paid work af­ter an in­ci­dent at a Mother­well town cen­tre store.

Peter Hendry stood in the dock at Hamil­ton Sher­iff Court last week to be sen­tenced for the un­savoury in­ci­dent at Pound­world in Bran­don Pa­rade South on March 9 last year.

Hendry, of Cours­ing­ton Tower, was con­victed of as­sault­ing a Pound­world em­ployee by try­ing to strike him on the body with a bot­tle and strug­gling with him.

He also ad­mit­ted be­hav­ing in an ag­gres­sive man­ner as well as shout­ing and mak­ing abu­sive re­marks.

How­ever, 43-year-old Hendry was ac­quit­ted of steal­ing food from the store and of pos­sess­ing an open bot­tle of booze.

Sen­tenc­ing Hendry, Sher­iff Linda Ni­col­son or­dered him to carry out 90 hours of un­paid work.

The work must be car­ried out within the next five months.

Hendry was also handed a one-year com­mu­nity pay­back or­der with a su­per­vi­sion re­quire­ment for the next 12 months.
