An angry man with company vans parked at his Glasgow home threatened staff with a knife.

A man got angry with a nearby business van parked on his road and threatened employees with a knife.

On June 24 last year, Eamonn Doherty called Agams Coach Works to complain about cars parked near her home in White Inch.

Prosecutor Ali Roy at Glasgow Sheriff’s Court said: “Two of the employees arranged to meet with the accused to resolve the matter.

“When they came to his street, the accused was shouting, ‘I’m going to do it for you, wait here and I’ll solve it for you.’

At the time, witnesses saw the suspect emerge from a large kitchen knife. He kept it with him while threatening to ‘do it to them’.

Glasgow Times:

“Police were contacted and arrived shortly afterwards. Officers visited the accused’s house. He was screaming and behaving aggressively.

“He was arrested, warned and charged and there was no response.”

Doherty, 32, who was representing him, told the court: “What I say is not going to change the outcome. I made a mistake and that’s it. That’s what it is.”

Sheriff Jonathan Guy told her: “After looking at all the powers of punishment, I am considering banning the liberty order.”

Doherty was ordered to stay inside her home address, which is now in the party, from 7pm to 7am for 163 days.

The sheriff added: “This is a direct alternative to detention.”
