A TULLIBODY man has admitted causing two disturbances within the space of a month.

Mark Nisbet 32, of The Braes, appeared at Alloa Sheriff Court last Thursday, January 20.

He admitted that on September 28, at Ladywell Drive, Tullibody, he acted aggressively, repeatedly shouted and swore at his former partner, demanded money from her, made derogatory comments to her and threw a bike.

He also admitted that later, on October 24, at The Braes, he acted aggressively, repeatedly shouted and repeatedly struck on an external door with a piece of concrete.

Depute fiscal Susannah Hutchison said that in the first incident Nisbet turned up at the back door of his former partner’s home at 7am.

He was shouting, swearing and demanding money from her as well as calling her offensive names.

When she told him she was calling the police he started throwing a bike about the garden.

The second incident involved Nisbet being asked to leave someone’s home where he had been drinking as he was becoming increasingly aggressive.

Police, called to the area by neighbours, then saw Nisbet walking towards the house carrying a piece of concrete which he repeatedly threw at the door before being arrested.

Sheriff Neil Bowie deferred sentence on Nisbet until April 14 for an assessment of whether he’s fit to do unpaid work.
