A WOMAN admitted shouting and swearing at two neighbours in their 60s during a row over dogs before adding ‘don’t you know who I am?’

Janice McCall, 41, pled guilty to the charge of threatening or abusive behaviour at Shalloch Place, Irvine – but was allowed to avoid attending court after a positive Covid test.

McCall, of Garellet Place, was fined £160 in her absence when her case called last week.

The Procurator Fiscal told the court the man and woman, aged 66 and 64 at the time, were in the garden at this time when a disagreement had taken place after an incident with their pets.

She said: “The witness shouted on the accused to get the dog out the garden.

“The accused and her partner were standing at the rear of the garden and started to shout and swear.

“The accused shouted ‘You’re a f***ing c***’, ‘you f***ing b*******’ and ‘don’t you know who I am?’

“Police were then contacted who attended the locus. The accused was then traced cautioned and charged.”

Defence solicitor Brian Holliman told the court his client had two children with active social work involvement.

He said: “She has lived at the address past three years.

“After what transpired that day the witnesses get on reasonably well together.”

He added she had been subject to the special condition of bail not to enter the locus.

Sheriff Ian Duguid gave McCall a £150 fine plus a £10 contribution to the Scottish Government’s victims of crime fund.

He said: “This is reduced from £200 by way of virtue of the plea being at an early stage, with the victim surcharge of £10.”
