A CLACKS man has been warned he could be back behind bars soon after causing domestic disturbances twice within week.

Stephen Roche was in the dock at Alloa Sheriff Court last Thursday, June 10, over the incidents.

The 27-year-old, formerly of Woodburn Drive, Alloa, now in homeless accommodation at Hallpark, Sauchie, had just been released from jail when found himself back in trouble.

Roche admitted that on March 31 and April 7, at Woodburn Drive, Alloa, he acted in an aggressive manner towards his partner by repeatedly shouting and swearing at her, repeatedly uttering offensive remarks, striking a light switch and damaging it and throwing clothing around.

Fiscal depute Susannah Hutchison said that in the first incident, at around 6am, Roche and his partner woke up and quickly started arguing.

He began to shout and swear then punched a wall, damaging a light switch.

She called the police and Roche could be heard shouting in the background: "Get the police; we're done, f*** you."

Later, she called 999 again saying: "He's smashed up my house."

The second incident occurred when she tried to wake him up for his work.

He became aggressive calling her a "cow" and a other offensive remarks.

Neighbours could hear him shouting and she asked him to leave. During the incident she called 999 four times.

Roche shouted: "You're a grass. I've no' even done nothing."

When arrested, Roche told police: "It's a complete misunderstanding."

Defence solicitor Kelly Howe told the court last week: "He builds up his feelings and has issues with anger management. It's a fiery situation."

Sheriff Alison Michie said she had concerns "given his record" and warned Roche a custodial sentence was being considered.

She deferred sentence until June 24 for a restriction of liberty assessment.
