A MAN left customers in Asda's Clydebank supermarket fearful and alarmed by his conduct, and now faces a jail term.

Alexander Taylor, 49, behaved in a threatening or abusive manner within the Britannia Way store, on May 19. He caused fear and alarm by shouting, swearing, acting in an aggressive manner and repeatedly making threats of violence. He also made sectarian comments.

On the same day, on Argyle Road, Clydebank, he again behaved in a threatening or abusive manner, causing fear and alarm, shouting and making offensive and racial remarks. The offences were committed with religious prejudice and racial aggravation.

At the time of the two offences Taylor was on bail from Dundee Sheriff Court, an order imposed on him on February 22, this year.

Taylor, of Spey Road, Bearsden, pleaded guilty to the offences at Dumbarton Sheriff Court last week.

Sheriff Maxwell Hendry deferred sentence on Taylor.
