A SAUCHIE man has been sentenced for disorder offences dating back almost four years.

David McKay, of Old College View, Sauchie, appeared in the dock at Alloa Sheriff Court last Thursday, August 4.

He previously admitted that on August 25, 2018, at Rosebank, Sauchie, he acted aggressively, repeatedly shouted, broke the window of a car, spat towards a police officer and committed a breach of the peace.

He also admitted that on July 23, 2020, at his then home Bowhouse Gardens, Alloa, he shouted, swore and behaved in an aggressive manner.

Depute fiscal Katherine Fraser said the first offence occurred after 10pm on a Saturday night.

Mackay’s mum had received a phone call saying he was causing a disturbance in a street nearby.

She walked towards a local pub and found him heavily under the influence of alcohol.

She walked him back home but on the way, Mackay picked up a rock and smashed the window of his own car with it.

Police received a number of calls from local residents about the disturbance.

Officers arrived and found him sitting on the road with his shirt off. The 29-year-old spat at an officer before being handcuffed and taken away.

In the latter offence, the couple had been in a relationship for two years and were living together at the time.

At 6pm, McKay began drinking alcohol with friends and consumed a 12-pack of lager and a bottle of wine.

He was drunk and his partner expected he may become upset because a friend of his had died recently.

At 2am, his friends left the house and McKay started shouting at his partner for “mugging me off”.

He lifted up a games console and said: “This would make a good hole in that wall.”

She was concerned for his well-being and contacted the police.

McKay later told officers: “I’m going to f****** kill her.”

Sheriff Neil Bowie said that some of the delays were caused by McKay failing to turn up at court previously.

He imposed a community payback order with 30 months’ supervision, participation in the Caledonian Programme for domestic offenders and 90 hours of unpaid work.
