A NIGHTMARE woke a 34-year-old Inverness man who then went down to see his girlfriend in the flat below, a court was told.
But when Ryan Jackson,of Aignish Drive, arrived in the downstairs flat on April 10, 2020 there was an argument and he pulled a TV he had loaned the woman off a wall and threw it on the ground.
Defence solicitor Marc Dickson told Sheriff Sara Matheson at Inverness Sheriff Court that his client returned upstairs and the police arrived.
“He was eating an apple and because he has no upper teeth, he was using a knife to cut it,” he said. “He was asked to drop it and threw it out a window. He has no recollection of the other offence.”
Jackson admitted malicious damage, threatening behaviour and culpably and recklessly coughing at police thereby possibly exposing them to Covid.
Since Jackson has another case calling on October 14, Sheriff Matheson deferred sentence until October 19.
