A BALLINGRY youth, who had his “wings clipped” recently by a sheriff, has been back in court.

The 16-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was put on a community payback order recently.

The teenager was back in the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court for causing a disturbance.

He admitted that on April 19, at Henryson Road, Dunfermline, he shouted, swore and threw two bottles which smashed, causing damage to a window.

Sheriff Charles MacNair called for reports and sentencing will take place on September 4.

Last month, the youth was put on a court order banning him from consuming alcohol following a catalogue of offending.

He had vandalised cars, damaged someone’s home and physically struggled with relatives in drink-fuelled trouble-making.

Sheriff James MacDonald imposed a community payback order with 12 months’ supervision and the special condition that he does not consume alcohol.

He was also put on a four-month restriction of liberty order.

“If you think I’m clipping your wings young man then you’re right in that,” said Sheriff MacDonald on that occasion.
