A MAN was caught out breaching a non-harassment order and then pretending to cops he was someone else after his girlfriend invited him to her home in Kilwinning.

David Guthrie, 35, pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice as well as breaching his non-harassment order – preventing him from being within 50metres of his partner - when he appeared in court recently.

The court heard the accused and complainer were in a relationship for 12 months and he had often stayed over in this time at an address in Kilwinning.

The Procurator Fiscal depute said: “At around 7.10pm police received an anonymous report of an ongoing incident with a male and female arguing, going on for an hour.

“Officers knocked loudly, both the accused and complainer were found in the bedroom. As per normal procedure both partners were separated and names were taken.

“Checks were carried out which showed his true identity and that had been on a non-harassment order and told he was under arrest.”

Sheriff George Jamieson sentenced Guthrie, of Sweeney Court, Ardrossan, to a 10-week restriction of liberty tagging order.
