A Dundee woman was ordered to carry out 45 hours unpaid work after a breach of the peace incident in which the accused’s own mother contacted police.
Andrea Terroni, 42, of Sinclair Street, pled guilty to behaving in a threatening or abusive manner at Stoneygroves, Liff, on July 31 by repeatedly banging and kicking doors and smashing a window.
Forfar Sheriff Court heard the accused’s husband had returned home from work around 7pm to find her intoxicated and a row broke out.
It escalated until she left with two suitcases, but then started banging doors and windows at the property.
Terroni’s husband had called the accused’s mother and when she overheard the commotion she phoned police.
Sheriff Murray told first-offender Terroni: “I would rather draw a line under this and give you a chance to reconcile with your husband, if that is what you want to do.”
