Corey Taylor, 64 Seaforth Road, Langlees, admitted behaving threateningly at Seaforth House, Langlees on January 7 by repeatedly shouting and swearing and uttering threats of violence.
The 21-year-old appeared at Falkirk Sheriff Court on Thursday where Sheriff Derek Livingston was told Taylor had a “significant previous conviction”.
Procurator fiscal depute Heather Galbraith said: “The locus is a residential homeless unit where the accused was residing.
“At approximately 7pm the accused returned to the locus. Witnesses believed he was under the influence of alcohol.
“The accused went to his room and the witness heard him shouting out the window at another resident, making threats to harm him and shouting ‘grass’.
“The witness spoke to the accused and went in to calm him down. Initially he did.”
However, things turned sour shortly afterwards as staff heard “items being thrown around and the accused shouting aggressively”.
The fiscal depute continued: “Police were contacted.
“The accused shouted towards the witnesses, ‘Call police but I’m not going without a fight’. Police attended and the accused was cautioned, charged and made no reply.”
Sheriff Livingston said: “I take it he did go without a fight or else there would be other charges.”
The fiscal depute replied: “Yes.”
Simon Hutchison, defence solicitor, said: “He had been there since October.
“He’s still there and the other person has been moved out. That gives some credence to the fact my client wasn’t the perpetrator.
“He realises he overreacted and shouldn’t have done.”
Taylor was fined £200, plus a £10 victim surcharge.
