A ROSNEATH man has been ordered to carry out unpaid community work after he admitted acting aggressively towards his partner.

Darren McGeachie, 22, of St Modan's Way, committed the offence on March 12, this year.

Dumbarton Sheriff Court heard last week how McGeachie behaved in a threatening or abusive manner likely to cause a reasonable person to suffer fear or alarm by acting in an aggressive manner towards his partner.

The court was told he was banging on the door of the family home and throwing stones at the window of the property.

McGeachie was on bail at the time, having been released on bail from the same court on January 19.

Defence lawyer Scott Adair said: "He is clearly a young man who needs support."

Sheriff William Gallacher put McGeachie on a community payback order for 18 months, ordering him to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work within eight months.

The order will be reviewed on September 28, when a supplementary report on McGeachie's circumstances will also be available.
