A 34-year-old man caused a disturbance in Menstrie striking a door with a crowbar.

Lee Johnson, 34, of Moden Road, Stirling, appeared for sentencing at Alloa Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on September 8 at his former home in Menstrie, he shouted, swore, acted aggressively, repeatedly tried to stop a woman from closing the door and struck it with a crowbar.

Depute fiscal Sean Iles said the incident occurred at around 8.20pm after the woman told Johnson he was not getting into the house.

Sheriff Garry Sutherland imposed a community payback order with nine months of supervision.
