A man was fined in court yesterday after throwing a brick through the window of a woman’s home.
Liam Brown pled guilty to acting in a threatening manner, damaging property and uttering threats of violence to police when he appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court yesterday.
He was spotted by witnesses shouting and swearing, before he threw a brick through the ground floor window, smashing the glass.
Fiscal Anna Chisolm said the 24-year-old then vented his anger on the flat’s communal door, smashing one of its panels.
She said: “When police arrived he was still kicking and punching the door and put his foot through the lowest panel.
“When police were called he continued to act aggressively and told officers he would “stick the head” in them and threatened to fight him.”
Brown was finally carried into a police van where he calmed down and was taken to Kittybrewster Police Station.
His defence lawyer Michael Burnett explained that Brown, whose address was given as Jasmine Terrace in Aberdeen, “held his hands up to the crime” and had since paid for the repairs.
Sheriff Cruickshank stated he had been close to imposing a jail sentence.
Brown was ordered to carry out 100 hours of work in the community and given a £500 fine.
