Homeless Inverness man jailed after throwing wheelie bins and punching off wing mirror

Inverness Castle

A 29-year-old road surfacer who had a fight with his girlfriend was jailed for five months at Inverness Sheriff Court yesterday.

Jamie King, of no fixed abode, appeared from custody and admitted behaving in an abusive or threatening manner on February 18 this year in King Street, Greig Street and Muirtown Street.

The court was told that he had been drinking and was shouting and swearing and throwing wheelie bins about.

Fiscal depute Ross Carvel said that King punched off the wing mirror of a car parked in Greig Street before conducting himself in a disorderly manner by fighting with Jamie Cousins.

Defence solicitor Laurajane Macnaughton said: “Alcohol was a factor here. He accepts his actions were diabolical. But the relationship is continuing.”

Sheriff Gordon Fleetwood told King: “Given your record I consider a custodial sentence is appropriate.”

He backdated sentence to February 20 when King was remanded in custody.
