A Sauchie man’s alcohol addiction has landed him in more trouble.

Robert Hanley, 51, of Lochbrae, appeared for sentencing at Alloa Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on September 13, at Backwood Court, Clackmannan, he shouted, swore and made offensive comments.

Then on November 12 at his home and in a police van he shouted, swore and acted aggressively.

The court was told that Hanley was shouting in the car park of a homeless accommodation unit at 2.30am. Someone heard the racket and shouted down to him the keep quiet.

Hanley then shouted abusive comments including “gay boy” and “f****t” to this person.

In the latter incident, at 4.15pm he was being taken to the police station in a vehicle and became abusive to officers.

Defence solicitor Michael Lowrie said: “He has a long-time alcohol addiction and can’t remember these incidents. He’s lost his marriage and his employment because of his addiction.”

Sheriff Neil Bowie imposed a community payback order with 12 months of supervision with a review on June 6.

He deferred sentence on the second offence until the same day.
