A YOUNG man who launched a telephone at his dad and poured a kettle of cold water over his poor mum's head claimed most people don't get on with their parents.

Sahib Sood, 23, made the statement after finding himself in the dock for losing his temper with his father over the use of the phone.

At Glasgow Sheriff Court last week, Sood pleaded guilty to the assault – which took place at an address in Conifer Place, Lenzie, on September 10 last year.

Following that incident, Sood would go on to assault his mother two months later.

As reported by the Evening Times previously, the accused poured a kettle of cold water over his mum's head during a violent outburst in November 2017.

He also threw his mother's laptop and mobile phone on the floor and smashed the house phone to pieces during his tantrum.

Sood menaced: "Just you watch, I'll smash your f****** house up."

The accused then took possession of a knife and repeatedly stabbed the dishwasher door.

Sheriff Lindsay Wood asked why Sood did not get on with his parents. The accused replied that most don't. The sheriff claimed that was a lie as he got on with his own parents.

For hitting his dad with a phone, the accused, of Rennie Road in Kilsyth, was sentenced to a Restriction of Liberty Order (RLO) in which he will have to remain at home between the hours of 9.30pm and 6am for three months.

Sheriff Wood stated: "You'll be tagged tonight, so be in."

Sood's lawyer highlighted that the accused had recently completed a RLO, implying he was keen to avoid another.

Sheriff Wood replied: "I'm not negotiating with him."
