A YOUNG bin man who was too drunk to be allowed in his girlfriend’s home was arrested for shouting, swearing and banging on her door after cops helped him get home following a night out in Glasgow.

David Rennie, 22, pleaded guilty to the threatening behaviour at Redstone Wynd, Kilwinning on February 18, when he appeared in court on March 3.

The Procurator Fiscal depute said: “The accused and complainer were in a relationship for approximately three years. The complainer was residing in the locus with their daughter. On February 17 the accused was out in Glasgow consuming alcohol.

“At 1am the accused attended the locus and was refused entry due to his intoxication. Police assisted in conveying the accused home.

“At 2am the accused was observed getting out of a taxi before shouting, swearing then banging on the back door of the property.

“Police attended and the accused was securely placed in a marked cell van and informed he was officially under arrest.”

Defending Sandy Currie told the court his client had had "too much to drink’.’

Sheriff Brown told Rennie: “If you can afford to spend money on drink, you can afford to pay a fine.”

He ordered Rennie, of Bute Court, Stevenston, to pay £170 in total.
