Robbie Taylor, 19, 50 Ladeside Crescent, Stenhousemuir, has admitted causing a man and woman to suffer fear or alarm by shouting and swearing while punching walls at an address in Braeview, Stenhousemuir on December 24, 2020 while on bail.

Taylor then breached a bail condition without reasonable excuse on December 25 by entering the same property.

Speaking at Falkirk Sheriff Court last Thursday, Simon Hutchison, defence solicitor, said: “I spoke to his father and he’d be happy to have him back in the family home if he stays off drugs.”

Sentence was deferred until June 17 for a report.
