A CLACKMANNAN man who made threats of violence when holding a knife then assaulted a police officer has been sentenced again.

Mark Todd, 34, of Erskine Place, appeared back in the dock at Alloa Sheriff Court after failing to complete his unpaid work.

Todd previously admitted that on January 10, 2020, at Garden Place, Clackmannan, he repeatedly struck a door, demanded entry, shouted, swore, made threats of violence whilst in possession of a knife, threatened to harm himself, made an offensive comment and struggled violently with police officers.

He also admitted he assaulted a police officer by kicking out at his face and chest making contact with his arms, attempting to kick him on the head and thereafter kicked him on the body.

Todd was unable to complete the unpaid work because of health reasons, the court was told.

In December 2020, he was sentenced to 250 hours of unpaid work but only completed 62 hours.

Defence solicitor Lewis Faulds previously said his client was anxious about leaving his house and had "put his head in the sand" over the order.

"There is a history of alcohol and drugs and he suffers from anxiety and depression," he added.

Sheriff Neil Bowie described the offences as "alarming to say the least".

The original order having been revoked, in its place the sheriff imposed a six-month restriction of liberty order and a community payback order with six months of supervision.
