A MAN kicked off at cops who turned up at his flat due to a noise complaint.

William Malloney, 30, was drinking and listening to music at 1.50am when someone made a report to Police Scotland on September 13, 2020.

The unknown person stated there was a disturbance in which they could hear screaming.

At Glasgow Sheriff Court, procurator fiscal depute Hazel Kerr said: “Around a dozen police officers attended at the flat in Castlemilk.

“On arrival, they attempted to gain access to the common close through the buzzer system but were refused by the accused.

“He continued to refuse officers access to the common close. He began shouting and screaming from the flat window telling officers to ‘f**k off’. They eventually gained access from a neighbouring flat buzzer.

“Police knocked on the door and the accused opened it. The officer put his foot to stop the door from being closed. The accused tried to close the door whilst shouting and swearing ‘you’re no f*****g getting in’.

“The accused continued to attempt to close the door. He was arrested and placed in handcuffs and put into the back of a cell van. He was conveyed to Govan police office and during this time refused to provide his details.

“He was informed he was required to do so but again refused.”

Malloney appeared in court for sentencing after previously pleading guilty to acting in an abusive manner, preventing officers from entering the home and failing to provide his name and address when asked.

His lawyer said: “He accepts full responsibility. He is a time served joiner and is now self-employed.

“He has a poor record including one long sentence. He’s trying to get on with his life and is holding down work.”

Sheriff Charles Lugton said: “There is limited scope for supervision as there have been no other offences since 2016.”

Malloney was ordered to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work.
