A CLYDEBANK man has been jailed for nine months over his behaviour in the town.

Lewis Graham, 21, had pleaded guilty last month to charges from two incidents in recent months and returned to Dumbarton Sheriff Court last week for sentencing.

Depute fiscal Gemma McKechnie said in the first incident just before 9pm on October 10 last year, police attended initially on an unrelated matter.

They found him in a lane between York Street and Vanguard Street in Drumry.

The court heard that when officers arrested Graham, he swore repeatedly at them, including stating, “I’ve done f*** all” and “You’re petty f****** tramps”.

He was taken to Clydebank police office and continued to hurl abuse within the custody suite.

Graham also told officers: “I hope you get your face smashed in” and “I will punch your head in”.

Months later, on March 2, Graham was at a property in Montrose Street, Drumry, when a “disagreement” broke out with two men.

Graham became agitated and picked up red stones from the garden and started throwing them at the living room windows - smashing the outer panes of two of them.

When police caught up with Graham, he again shouted and swore at officers.

His defence solicitor told the court Graham was currently on a community payback order (CPO) from Falkirk with another 15 months of supervision to run.

Sheriff Simon Pender pointed out nearly four months after he was put on the CPO, Graham was “still behaving like this”.

Graham’s solicitor said his client had issues with alcoholism but he “realises the position he is in”, adding: “He is full of remorse and regret.”

But Sheriff Pender noted Graham’s “appalling record for someone of your age” as well as his continued offending even when under court orders, showed he shouldn’t get another chance.

Graham, listed in court papers as resident in Seedhill Road, Paisley, was jailed for a total of nine months.

Not guilty pleas were accepted previously over charges of stealing a bike and resisting arrest on March 2.
