An Aberdeen man yesterday admitted assaulting and threatening his former partner during a rampage that culminated with the smashing of eggs.
The city’s sheriff court heard yesterday that Neil Sim began “shouting suddenly” on February 21 this year, at about 2am, after he was unable to find an unspecified “personal item”.
Fiscal depute Gavin Letford said it had “angered” Sim, who took out his anger on his partner – beginning with smashing her mobile phone against a wall.
Sim then went into a bedroom where he threw plastic boxes at the windows and then grabbed a flat screen TV, throwing it across the room and smashing it.
Mr Letford said the 25-year-old had then “pushed her on the chest with both of his hands”, causing her to stumble backwards.
The court was told Sim had then left the bedroom and entered the kitchen where he picked up a box containing 18 soft drink tins.
He threw it at the wall before picking up a container of eggs and throwing them at the wall.
Mr Letford said that while he was doing this, Sim said to his partner: “You want eggs?
“Here are your eggs.”
He then started punching various walls and doors of the house.
The police were subsequently called and Sim was cautioned and arrested.
The court heard Sim had a drug issue at the time of the offences and described the relationship as “toxic”.
Sheriff Ian Duguid ordered him to carry out 150 hours of unpaid work.
He also imposed a year-long supervision order and a one-year non-harassment order.
