A GIRVAN teen who threatened a 12 year old boy and assaulted a police officer has been jailed following a breach of his Community Payback Order.

Shay Allan admitted that he was in breach of this last month and appeared at Ayr Sheriff Court on Tuesday September 18 for sentencing.

Allan was originally given a Restriction of Liberty Order in addition to this for a series of aggressive behaviour that included breaking a house window with a brick on January 11 , after threatening a 12 year old boy who lived there.

He threatened to break the window and set his house on fire. He also pled guilty to obstructing officers in the execution of their duty after swearing, spitting and struggling with them as he was escorted to a cell.

He was also found to have spat at the officers and struggled with them as he was escorted to a cell. Allan pled guilty to assaulting a police officer at the time as well.

Later, the 18 year old was in trouble again, this time stealing a bottle of whisky from Asda on Vicarton Street in Girvan. This offence was committed while on bail. Allan was later caught carrying a meat cleaver in Vicarton Street.

He was taken to Ayr Police Station on King Street where he assaulted a police officer.

Solicitor Tony Currie said: “He [Allan] knows the difficulty he finds himself in.

“He’s attended today knowing very well his Lordship’s options are very limited."

Sheriff Desmond Leslie revoked the previously imposed Restriction of Liberty order which was breached in lieu of a sentencing of four months in prison for the charges.
