Aggressive teenager denied bail

A teenager who breached the peace at his Lerwick home and later at the Gilbert Bain Hospital has been remanded in custody.

Larri Goodlad, 18, of Hill Grind in Lerwick, admitted shouting, swearing and making threats when he appeared  from custody before sheriff Philip Mann. He was on bail when the offence took place on Sunday.

Lerwick Sheriff Court heard Goodlad had contacted the police himself which led to officers attending his home.
When they arrived he started behaving aggressively and punched a wall, injuring himself.

He was taken to hospital but began being disruptive there, too, despite efforts from the police and nursing staff to calm him down.

Procurator fiscal Duncan MacKenzie said two young children were being treated in the A&E department at the time and heard Goodlad’s behaviour very close by.

Questioned later, Goodlad had said the reason for his behaviour was that he had taken alcohol, cannabis and amphetamine.

Sentence was deferred until Thursday and Goodlad was denied bail.
