A TEENAGER who hurled abuse at his partner at the home they shared in Dumbarton has been told to do unpaid work as a punishment.

Patrick McArthur, 19, shouted, swore, acted aggressively and directed offensive remarks towards the woman and a 61-year-old man at the property in Stoneyflatt Road on October 24 last year.

He also admitted shouting, swearing, acting aggressively towards and struggling violently with two police officers in Stoneyflatt Road and Whiteford Avenue following the incident.

At a hearing at the town’s sheriff court on Friday, McArthur was told to carry out 150 hours of unpaid work within six months.

He was also placed under social workers’ supervision until April 2020, and was ordered to take part in West Dunbartonshire’s PAIR programme, which works with those convicted of domestic violence offences.
