A TULLIBODY man has been fined after admitting kicking his girlfriend’s door after she refused to let him in her home.

Kieran Rennie pleaded guilty to an amended charge which stated that on February 14 of this year at Fairfield School Court, Sauchie, he caused fear or alarm by repeatedly striking a door and windows before repeatedly kicking the door.

The charge was amended to remove an allegation of uttering threats.

At a previous hearing on April 30, the court heard that the accused arrived at the property under the influence of alcohol around 12am and demanded to be let in, to which he was told no by the complainer.

Rennie then went around to the back of the property and started banging the windows and was then challenged by a neighbour. After being confronted, the accused started shouting abuse at the complainer.

At that point the police were called to the incident and when officers arrived they witnessed the accused walking away from the property with two other people.

Kelly Howe, defending the 20-year-old at the April appearance, told the court at the time that her client “does not normally drink” and accepts his behaviour on the evening was “alarming”.

Ms Howe confirmed that the couple of two years were back together.

The case was deferred for four months for Rennie, of Carseview, Tullibody, to be of good behaviour, which he was.

Sheriff David Mackie fined the accused £150.
