A MAN sent cops to his girlfriend's home in Clydebank after she refused to give him money.

Kevin Harte messaged his partner demanding cash so he could get a train home on January 30 this year. 

However, when she refused and ignored his threatening voicemails he sent the police to her door.

At Dumbarton Sheriff Court last week it was heard by procurator fiscal Tiffany Chisholm that a small argument broke out which left the woman blocking her partner's number.

The 31-year-old left numerous voicemails some of which included "you f***ing b****rd", "you won't even help me out you cow", "you f***ing boot", "I don't have any money to get home", and "I am f***ing reporting you if you don't help me out".

Ms Chisholm said that she did not reply to any of his voicemails.

Harte, of Lochend Path in Glasgow's East End, contacted police asking them to carry out a welfare check as he stated that she was going to harm herself.

When police attended, no concerns were raised about her wellbeing, but she did show them the threatening voicemails he left on her phone.

Harte appeared in the dock for sentencing after previously pleading guilty to behaving in a threatening and abusive manner.

Harte's lawyer explained to Sheriff Seith Ireland that his partner was in attendance at his court hearing, so a non-harassment order wouldn't be required.

She said: "The messages left were really in the heat of the moment due to the comment that she made that she was going to harm herself.

"He is regretful of making them and does accept responsibility for them.

"They have continued to be in a relationship and no further issues have arisen.

"He has voluntarily engaged with addiction services as part of his community payback order [from Glasgow Sheriff Court]. According to the author of the [social work] report he is doing well with that treatment and programme.

"My invitation would be not to throw a spanner in the works with his recovery, but aid to it."

The case was deferred until the end of this year for Harte to be on good behaviour. 

In the meantime, he is not to enter the victim's home address in Clydebank.

Sheriff Ireland added: "Victims are not the best judges of their own safety. I am not convinced that there is much to be dealt with. In my view, justice can't be done today as you have recently been given a second chance at Glasgow."
