A Dundee man found himself in court after flying into a rage over a missing bus pass.
Mark Warren, of Adamson Court, admitted behaving in a threatening and abusive manner by shouting, swearing, striking front doors and failing to desist when asked to do so in the common close of the building.
Sentencing was deferred until March 6 for background reports and a restriction of liberty order assessment.
The incident happened on March 25 while Warren was under the influence of alcohol.
Police gave him a warning, which he appeared to accept, Dundee Sheriff Court heard.
However, on April 19 the 42-year-old got into another altercation with residents at a common close on Perth Road.
In the early hours of the morning he repeatedly shouted, swore, demanded access to a flat occupied by Richard Walsh, threatened him with violence, repeatedly struck his front door and tried to force it open with an implement.
Warren then asked a neighbour for help to get into the flat but she swore at him, to which he replied “I’ll put the heid on you”, the court was told.
Later that morning he was found in possession of scissors at Dundee House.
Solicitor Theo Finlay said: “He was trying to get his bus pass from his friend.
“This lasted for three hours and neighbours were getting fed up.
“He was out of it. There are substance misuse issues.
“He has had difficulty with his neighbours and he brought adverse attention on himself because of his drug and alcohol abuse.
“He then went to Dundee House to get another bus pass.”
