A CLYDEBANK man was kicked out of his parents’ home after coming back to the property drunk.

Allan Scott, a court heard, was reprimanded by his father for his drinking – to which he replied: “I’m 40, I’ll do what I f*****g well like.”

Scott appeared in court on Friday, December 20, for sentencing on three matters – acting aggressively towards his father at their home in Redburn on August 15, shouting, swearing, trying to force a door and grabbing a worker at the Ashton View Project in Dumbarton on November 5; and breaching a condition of bail by going back to his parents’ home on December 1.

Fiscal depute Emma Petterson told Dumbarton Sheriff Court, that after being spoken to by his father about his alcohol consumption in the August incident, Scott had lunged at his father, throwing his arms about and causing his father to believe he was about to be attacked.

“The accused refused to go to his room,” Ms Petterson continued, “and due to his behaviour, his father called the police.”

Police went to the scene and arrested Scott before cautioning and charging him.

Earlier this year, Scott was handed a community payback order (CPO) with two years of social work supervision, along with an unpaid work punishment, after admitting trying to strangle his father at the Redburn property on March 8.

Scott’s solicitor, Brian McGuire, said the unpaid work order of that sentence – 120 hours, to be carried out within eight months – had been completed early, and that there were 17 months of supervision still to go.

Mr McGuire told the court: “There’s a thread that runs through all of this; he has various difficulties, but if he takes drink, things go wrong.”

Sheriff John Hamilton handed Scott two “restriction of liberty orders”, to be served concurrently, which will see him tagged and confined to his Overtoun Court address every night from 7pm to 7am until June.

On the bail breach, he was admonished.
