A man trashed his girlfriend’s house and flooded her kitchen after a night out in Elgin.
George Prossar warned his partner by text that she had “10 minutes to return home or he would smash up the place”.
The pair had become separated while on a night out socialising with friends in the town centre on August 28 this year, Elgin Sheriff Court was told.
When the woman got back to her flat she found Prossar, 32, in a “highly agitated state and shouting and swearing” so she left in a bid to calm the situation down.
But as soon as she left and he locked the door and began his destructive rampage.
Fiscal depute Karen Poke said the woman heard “loud smashing” as she stood outside her Christie Road home.
“When she got back in the television was smashed, multiple pieces of furniture were all broken, the washing machine had been pulled from the wall and the kitchen was flooded,” Ms Poke said.
“He continued to argue with her.”
Took refuge with neighbour
The woman sought refuge with a neighbour and police were called.
They traced him nearby and spent the night in Elgin Police Station.
Prossar admitted a charge of threatening or abusive behaviour, shouting, swearing and acting in an aggressive manner while damaging property.
Sheriff Robert McDonald deferred sentencing of Prossar, of Christie Road, Elgin, for four weeks.
