AN ALLOA man, who threw bricks through a woman's windows and caused a disturbance at a hospital in an earlier incident, has been jailed.

Craig Chalmers, of Bowhouse Gardens, at Alloa Sheriff Court by video-link from prison to be sentenced for a spree of offending.

He was previously found guilty of charge that on August 27, at Drysdale Street, Alloa, he approached a man in the street, placed his arm around him, pursued him, adopted an aggressive attitude, made demands and uttered threats towards him and two others.

The 30-yer-old admitted another charge that on August 28, at Harris Court, Alloa, he damaged windows at a property by throwing bricks through them.

Chalmers previously admitted a string of offences which took place on July 17.

At Ashley Terrace, Alloa, and during a journey to Falkirk police station, he acted aggressively, challenged people to fight, brandished a piece of wood and repeatedly banged his head off the police vehicle interior.

At Forth Valley Hospital, Larbert, he resisted being put into a police vehicle, refused to walk, then struggled and lashed out at officers.

He also acted aggressively at the hospital, shouted, swore, made threats of violence and offensive comments.

Defence solicitor Charlotte Watt said: "Substance misuse has been the root cause of his offending."

Sheriff Bowie told Chalmers he had been found guilty of an incident in the street "involving a totally innocent member of the public where you threatened to stab him believing he had drugs he could give you".

He went on: "You then put in the window of a woman's house. When she came out, you put another window in.

"You were then involved in this disruptive and frightening behaviour towards hospital staff and police."

Sheriff Neil Bowie jailed Chalmers for 310 days backdated to November 15.
