A CLACKMANNAN man was seen swinging a wrench about before damaging a wall.

It was the second domestically-aggravated offence committed by Stuart Black, Alloa Sheriff Court heard.

The 29-year-old appeared for sentencing last week and admitted that on October 31, at Craigrie Terrace, Clackmannan, he acted in an aggressive manner, went there in possession of a metal wrench, made threats, struck a door and caused damage to a wall.

He then obstructed police officers by tensing his body in an attempt to prevent him being place in a police vehicle.

Depute fiscal Rachel Wallace said there had been an argument with his partner and Black left. He returned in possession of a wrench which he was swinging around.

He was hitting at the locked door, damaging the wall.

Sheriff Neil Bowie told Black: “This is your second domestic offence and must have been extremely frightening conduct directed at your former partner, using a wrench to damage the property.”

The sheriff imposed a community payback order with two years of supervision and participation in the Caledonian Men’s Programme for domestic offenders.

Black, of Zetland Street, was also ordered to do 100 hours of unpaid work and was made subject to a non-harassment order for four months.
