Sentence was deferred, at Campbeltown sheriff court, on a teenager who punched a car windscreen so hard it cracked.

John Townsley, 18, of 20 Glenside, Campbeltown appeared from custody, last Thursday, and pleaded guilty to striking the car, in Cross Street on May 27.

Townsley also pleaded guilty to behaving in an abusive manner and kicking a door at a woman’s property, in Albyn Avenue, on July 4.

Both offences were committed while Townsley was on bail granted, at Campbeltown sheriff court, on December 6 last year.

When questioned by police about the incident with the 17 plate car Townsley said he had taken a lot of drink and could not remember anything.

Sheriff Patrick Hughes called for reports and bailed Townsley, warning him that if there was any further offending he would be jailed.
