An Irvine man is behind bars for refusing to stop shouting at the police.

Steven Abercrombie, 37, admitted behaving in a threatening or abusive manner by acting aggressively by shouting and swearing at police and refusing to desist before being arrested on Caldon Road on September 23 2019.

The Wallace Road resident was given 18 weeks imprisonment when he appeared at Kilmarnock Sherriff Court last week.
