Birthday breach

A CUNNINGSBURGH man who got drunk on his 60th birthday was fined £600 for breaching the peace at his home when he appeared at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Monday.

Laurence Jarmson, of 4 St Clair Road, admitted returning home after his birthday celebrations on Friday night to shout, swear, threaten violence and brandish his fist at his partner.

He was arrested on Saturday and spent the weekend in the cells before appearing from custody and pleading guilty before honorary sheriff Arnold Duncan.

Also appearing from custody was 18 year old Nathan Hilditch, who admitted he had breached a bail condition not to consume alcohol after police breathalysed him at his home at 12a Horseshoe Close, Virkie, in the early hours of Monday.

Sentence was deferred for six months for Hilditch to be of good behaviour.
