A repeat offender is back behind bars after abusing police who stopped him in Aberdeen city centre.
William Main had been out drinking with friends and was keen to find his bike, which he had hidden in an alcove as he did not have a padlock for it, early yesterday morning.
Officers stopped him on Miller Street because they thought he was acting suspiciously.
But the 40-year-old became aggressive, and utterered threats as he was taken to Kittybrewster Police Station.
Yesterday he appeared in Aberdeen Sheriff Court where he admitted behaving threateningly towards officers.
The court heard he had recently been released from prison at the time of the offence.
Procurator Fiscal Katie Begg said: “He said he was going to ‘kick off’ if the officer did not leave him alone.”
Representing Main, defence agent Graham Morrison said: “He was anxious about his bike being stolen and refused to go with the police.
“Because he was innocent he was quite happy to kick off.
“He has served many custodial sentences. He is probably in a better condition than he has been for a long time.”
Sheriff Marion McDonald said: “You were only out of jail and then you committed another offence.
“There is no alternative but a custodial sentence.”
She sentenced Main, of Great Northern Road, Aberdeen to two months imprisonment.
