An Aberdeen man yelled his own name while embarking on a car-smashing rampage, a court has heard.
Scott Corsair admitted to using a large wooden stick to bash up a car parked on St Ninian’s Place in June 2014.
At around 11.30pm one evening, the 42-year-old had texted a woman who lives there to say he was going to be visiting.
But outlining the charges at Aberdeen Sheriff Court on Monday, Fiscal Deputy Lynzi Souter said things turned south when the woman refused to come to the door.
“He said he was going to smash up all the cars in the car park if she didn’t come to see him,” Mrs Souter said.
“They then heard banging from outside and saw him striking a vehicle using a large wooden stick.
“He was heard shouting: ‘I’m Scott Corsair, phone the police’.”
In addition, Mrs Souter outlined an incident where Corsair dented a car bonnet on Marchburn Drive in September 2015.
The depute fiscal said: “The witness heard the accused say to the male (he was with): ‘Watch this’.
“The accused was then seen to pick up a large boulder from a garden and thereafter entered a driveway and threw the boulder onto the bonnet of a vehicle.”
Corsair’s solicitor Liam McAllister said the incidents came at a difficult time in his life.
He said: “He was consuming alcohol to excess and acknowledged he had an alcohol problem.
“And at the time he was, effectively, homeless.”
After considering the two incidents, and the fact that Corsair initially failed to appear in court, Sheriff Graham Buchanan ordered him to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work within five months and fined him £520.
