A HELENSBURGH resident whose breach of a community sentence was the latest in a string of offences has been jailed for ten months.

Sheriff Maxwell Hendry finally ran out of patience with Antonio Ross last week.

The 24-year-old, of Williamson Drive, was convicted of committing a number of offences in Clydebank on July 18, 2017.

On that day, Ross committed his first offence by providing police with false details with the intention of perverting the course of justice.

He then resisted arrest from four police officers, and barricaded himself into a bathroom.

Dumbarton Sheriff Court heard that Ross also behaved in a threatening or abusive manner and acted aggressively towards officers by shouting and swearing.

During the melee, he also repeatedly made threats to the police, and rained punches on to the shields that officers were using for protection.

At the time of that offence, Ross was on bail at the time from an order imposed on him on June 2, 2017, for an unrelated matter.

Furthermore, Ross also twice breached a court curfew imposed as part of a community payback order [CPO] – when he was arrested at the scene of the disturbance in Clydebank’s Montrose Street, it was between 7pm and 7am, when he should have been at home.

The court heard it was the second time he had breached the curfew: a month earlier, on June 17, he was caught at the Mountblow Superstore in Clydebank.

Defence lawyer Scott Adair acknowledged: “The offences may be of some vintage, but he fears his fate may be run by not complying with conditions of the community payback order.”

And Sheriff Hendry duly revoked the CPO and jailed Ross for 10 months, telling him: “You have had one or two extra chances that you might not otherwise have expected to be given.”
