James McIntyre (62) did not appear at Falkirk Sheriff Court on Thursday, but he had previously admitted the assault he committed at his home in Marshall Tower, Seaton Place, Falkirk on October 24 last year.

The charges stated he repeatedly called 999 and caused numerous units to come his address and then, after refusing to open his door, he told officers he was on his window ledge, hanging his legs out of the window of the 16-storey high building.

In his absence, Sheriff Derek Livingston deferred sentence on McIntyre until April 29 and called for a criminal justice social work report and a restriction of liberty order assessment to be carried out within that time period.
