A man with a history of domestic assault has admitted to drunkenly threatening a woman and her mother after they all attended a wedding together.

Scott Moore, 27, of Ardneil Court in Ardrossan, appeared at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court last week and pled guilty to one charge.

The court heard that on October 14, the evening before the offence, Moore and the woman had attended a wedding in the Prestwick area along with two witnesses.

They were picked up a few hours later at 12.30am on October 15 and taken back to Saltcoats. Moore and one of the witnesses, the complainer’s mother, began arguing.

The 27-year-old said to the mum: “You won’t see your f*****’ gran weans again” and also called her “a f*****’ a******e”.

The complainer then got involved in the argument and Moore started arguing with her as well.

Moore continued to argue with the woman’s mum, whom he then called “a f*****’ tramp”.

The woman and her mother tried to calm Moore down. He responded: “Who the f*** are you?” and demanded his house keys.

Moore went into his home and the two women contacted the police.

The court heard that later on during his police interview, Moore said that he had no recollection of the incident at all. He was cautioned and charged and made no reply.

Moore represented himself in court last week and claimed that he had been drinking on top of medication at the time of the offence.

Sheriff Michael Hanlon said: “There is one previous conviction involving an assault, a domestic with your partner at the time. Given that this seems to be an issue that’s happened because you drink, I’m going to call for a Criminal Justice Social Work Report. The social work department will need to speak to you.”

The sheriff then added: “Is there anything you wish to say to me or would you prefer to wait for the report?”

Moore replied: “Just that I shouldn’t have been drinking because I was on prescribed medication at the time because I had my appendix removed the week previous.”

Sheriff Hanlon released Moore on bail with standard conditions.

Moore will return to the court on December 7 following a Criminal Justice Social Work Report.
