A man who tossed a TV out his window and caused extensive damage to two vehicles in Aberdeen has said he just “wanted to break his windows in peace”.
Emmett Doherty, 31, appeared yesterday at Aberdeen Sheriff Court and admitted to culpably and recklessly throwing his television from his flat at Craigie Street in the Granite City on January 4 of this year.
Fiscal depute Lucy Simpson told the court that, just after 9am, police on mobile patrol were flagged down by a member of the public who had witnessed what had taken place.
Two vehicles which were parked on the street downstairs were struck and sustained “extensive damage”.
Ms Simpson said: “The accused said he just wanted to break his windows in peace.
“He was then taken to Kittybrewster Police Station.”
One of the vehicles had “extensive damage” while the second had “considerable damage from the crushed bodywork”.
Sheriff Graeme Napier said: “It is very concerning that anyone should do anything so reckless and dangerous.
“And especially saying he just wants to be left to break his windows in peace.”
Sheriff Napier deferred sentencing for a criminal justice social work report to be drawn up and an assessment for a restriction of liberty order.
Doherty, whose address was given as Craigie Street in Aberdeen, is set to appear again at a later date.
