A 40-YEAR-OLD man was kicked out of his Bonhill home by his parents after coming back to the property drunk.

Allan Scott, a court heard, was reprimanded by his father for his drinking – to which he replied: "I'm 40, I'll do what I f*****g well like."

Scott appeared in court on Friday for sentencing on three matters – acting aggressively towards his father at their home in Redburn on August 15, shouting, swearing, trying to force a door and grabbing a worker at the Ashton View Project in Dumbarton on November 5; and breaching a condition of bail by going back to his parents' home on December 1.

Fiscal depute Emma Petterson told Dumbarton Sheriff Court on Friday that after being spoken to by his father about his alcohol consumption in the August incident, Scott had lunged at his father, throwing his arms about and causing his father to believe he was about to be attacked.

"The accused refused to go to his room," Ms Petterson continued, "and due to his behaviour, his father called the police."

Police went to the scene and arrested Scott before cautioning and charging him.

Ms Petterson went on to describe the November incident at the Ashton View Project, where Scott was living at the time; she said two project workers had heard Scott shouting "I'm causing it, can you not hear I'm causing it" from his room.

Later he told the same two staff members "youse have done f*** all for me" and "youse aren't phoning the police, you're no' doing anything".

But police were contacted, and again Scott was arrested, cautioned and charged.

The bail order which was breached on December 1 had been imposed after Scott appeared in court the day after the Redburn incident.

Earlier this year, Scott was handed a community payback order (CPO) with two years of social work supervision, along with an unpaid work punishment, after admitting trying to strangle his father at the Redburn property on March 8.

Scott's solicitor, Brian McGuire, said the unpaid work order of that sentence – 120 hours, to be carried out within eight months – had been completed early, and that there were 17 months of supervision still to go.

Mr McGuire told the court: "There's a thread that runs through all of this; he has various difficulties, but if he takes drink, things go wrong.

"He was upset and his behaviour was entirely inappropriate."

Mr McGuire said that as a result of his behaviour at the Ashton View Project in November, Scott had been told he was no longer welcome at the facility, and had thus been effectively homeless, though he had since managed to find accommodation at Overtoun Court in Dalmuir.

"The bail breach happened during a cold snap," Mr McGuire continued. "He had no electricity at his own tenancy and went to his parents' address for a heat."

Suggesting the imposition of a community payback order with an unpaid work punishment, Mr McGuire said: "Unpaid work seems to occupy his time and gives him a purpose.

"Custody is the last place he wants to go, but I've explained to him that if he keeps on offending, that's where he will end up."

Instead, however, Sheriff John Hamilton handed Scott two 'restriction of liberty orders', to be served concurrently, which will see him tagged and confined to his Overtoun Court address every night from 7pm to 7am until June.

On the bail breach, he was admonished.
