A FISHING trip to Tullibody led to a Glasgow man causing a drunken disturbance with complete strangers.

Aiden Penman was barely able to stand up as he staggered into a man’s garden banging on his window.

Penman was challenging people to fight and repeatedly shouting: “I’m from Glasgow”.

As a result the 25-year-old, of Liddesdale Road, Glasgow, appeared in the dock at Alloa Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on January 6 last year at The Tannery, Tullibody, he shouted, swore, banged on doors and windows in the street.

He challenged residents to a fight, approached a resident aggressively, pulled at his clothing and made offensive and derogatory comments towards police officers.

Depute fiscal Susannah Hutchison said at 8.30pm a man heard banging on his rear window and saw Penman in his back garden.

The man went outside to confront him and Penman shouted: “I’m from Glasgow”.

Penman began pulling at the man’s shirt while other neighbours were witnessing the incident.

The man tried to get away from Penman but he followed him.

The police were contacted and when officers arrived Penman tried to run off but was caught.

“He was heavily under the influence of alcohol and was struggling to stand up,” said the depute.

“He kept shouting, ‘I’m from Glasgow’.”

Defence solicitor Robert Smith said: “He’d come through to Tullibody to go fishing with a friend. This happened the night before they were supposed to be going fishing.”

He said his client had taken alcohol and drugs then went out looking for his friend’s dog which had escaped from the garden.

“He’s very apologetic and won’t be returning to Tullibody,” he added.

Sheriff Neil Bowie imposed a community payback order with 90 hours of unpaid work.
