A man who had an argument with his wife and admitted venting his anger at the car they jointly owned had sentence deferred when he appeared from custody at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Tuesday.
The court heard that Aigers Kadils, 39, a Latvian living in Cheyne Crescent, Lerwick, behaved in a threatening manner by shouting, brandishing a golf club and damaging the bodywork of the car with the golf club at Cheyne Crescent on Friday.
Procurator fiscal Duncan MacKenzie said Kadils, who had proceedings explained by an interpreter, had been in custody since the event and realised how stupid he had been.
Honorary sheriff Arnold Duncan said that Kadils’ actions had been “somewhat senseless”. Bearing in mind that Kadils had “no background” in this sort of behaviour, that he had spent four nights in custody and had made an early plea of guilty, he deferred sentence for three months for Kadils to be of good behaviour.
