A man who threatened police was given a second chance after a sheriff heard he’s battling his booze problems.
Andrew McInally, 58, of Ballindean Place, was arrested after a bust-up at his home address on February 15.
At Dundee Sheriff Court, he admitted behaving in a threatening or abusive manner.
McInally also admitted issuing threats of violence to police but Sheriff Alastair Brown was impressed by his move to attend alcohol treatment two or three times a week.
He said: “The source of your problem is alcohol and it is greatly to your credit you have done something about it.”
Sheriff Brown imposed a one-year supervision order.
