A man who hurled part of a fridge from a first floor balcony at a police officer called to probe an alleged lockdown party in Fife was jailed for 10 months yesterday.
Nico Braithwaite, 22, threw a glass shelf from the refrigerator and a glass bottle at Detective Constable Callum Clayton in the late-night incident in Kennoway.
Falkirk Sheriff Court heard the bottle “narrowly missed” Mr Clayton and the shelf landed just a “short distance” from him.
Prosecutor Paul Jamieson said officers had been sent to the flats, in Leven Road, at 11.30pm on April 14.
Mr Jamieson said: “DC Clayton began a conversation with the accused, who was on a first floor rear balcony, and asked for entry into the property.
“The accused refused him entry and began shouting and swearing at DC Clayton, eventually throwing a glass bottle from the balcony.
“It narrowly missed DC Clayton.
“A few seconds later he then took a glass shelf from a refrigerator, and this was also thrown by him from the balcony towards DC Clayton.
“It landed on a grassy area a short distance from the officer.”
Officers eventually gained entry to the flat in the block, and he was arrested.
Braithwaite, of Leven Road, Kennoway, pled guilty to police assault.
