A MAN who was ordered not to approach or contact his ex then went shopping with her in Clydebank, a court has heard.

Robert Martin, of Dumbarton Road, Glasgow, had been granted bail on June 21 this year and told not to approach the woman – but did so on September 5.

Dumbarton Sheriff Court was told last week that the 38-year-old travelled with the woman from Yoker to Clydebank.

The court heard that Martin wasn’t happy with how the woman was speaking, to a shopkeeper and the salesman contacted police after seeing the woman in an emotional state.

Fiscal depute Martina McGuigan said the woman was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital and Martin was later found by police. He said he knew there were special conditions not to approach the woman.

Martin’s defence solicitor said the pair were shopping together on a “consensual basis”.

Sheriff William Gallacher said: “This is a blatant disregard or the authority of the court. You just don’t care.

“If you come back before the court, I think the court will say you have to go to prison.”

Martin was put under supervision of social workers for 12 months.
