The 16-year-old appeared at Falkirk Sheriff Court last Thursday.

He’d admitted acting in an aggressive manner, shouting, swearing, brandishing a piece of wood, striking a door with the weapon, causing damage, challenging another to a fight and uttering threats of violence at an address in Portal Road, Grangemouth on February 19.

The teen, who cannot be named for legal reasons, also pleaded guilty to wilfully or recklessly damaging property belonging to another by striking the piece of wood against a door, causing glass to smash, and having an offensive weapon without reasonable excuse or lawful authority in a public place.
