AN ALVA man threatened to burn down his dad's house in a row about money.

Gary Watt, 37, was also abusive towards his mother in a separate incident.

Watt, of Dalmore Drive, appeared at Alloa Sheriff Court by video-link from prison.

He admitted that on April 21, at Johnston Street, Alva, he acted in an aggressive manner, shouted, swore, made offensive comments, kicked a door, made threats of violence and homophobic remarks.

He also admitted that on May 27 and May 28, at his dad's home in Backwood Court, Clackmannan, he repeatedly kicked a door, shouted, swore, demanded entry and threatened to set fire to his father's car.

Then, on June 7, he breached bail by repeatedly making phone calls to John Watt, his father.

The court was told the first incident involved his mother. At 3.15pm she called the police to say her son was demanding money to pay for a taxi.

When she refused, he started shouting at her and calling her names.

He then threatened to throw a brick through the window.

When police arrived, he began shouting at the officers and was repeatedly abusive towards them calling them "f****** idiots" and "a pair of p****".

In the second incident, his dad was at home in the evening when he heard his son shouting from outside: "Old p****, you better let me in."

He then shouted: "I'm going to burn your house down."

Police were called and found Watt in the street with bottles of vodka and Buckfast, highly intoxicated.

In the last case, at 8am he starting asking his dad for money.

His dad then continued to receive calls throughout the day including a threat to burn his car.

Defence solicitor Kelly Howe said her client was serving a sentence imposed in June and his expected release date was October 7.

She went on: "He generally has a good relationship with his mother.

"He's an alcoholic, whether he accepts it or not. His father's also an alcoholic and they have turbulent relationship when both of them are drinking."

Sheriff Neil Bowie told Watt: "Your offending has continued and again is directed against your parents and police officers as it has in the past."

He jailed Watt for 234 days to run consecutively to his current sentence.
