A MAN has been jailed for more than four months after admitting drugs, assault and threatening behaviour charges.

David Carroll pleaded guilty to five charges including acting aggressively at his partner's home, possession of cannabis and assaulting three police officers earlier this year.

The 38-year-old, whose address was listed in court papers as Old Caley Road in Irvine, committed the offences at his former home in Dykesmains Road, Saltcoats and at Crosshouse Hospital on January 17.

He behaved in a threatening or abusive manner after attending at the home of his partner, and acted in an aggressive manner by repeatedly shouting and swearing, demanding entry and repeatedly striking and kicking the front door.

At his old home in Saltcoats and afterwards at Crosshouse Hospital he also acted in an aggressive manner towards police officers by repeatedly shouting and swearing.

He then resisted, obstructed or hindered three police constables at his home, throwing his body around and struggling violently with them.

A fourth charge stated Carroll was found in possession of cannabis.

At the hospital, he also assaulted the same three police officers by repeatedly attempting to kick them on the body.

Carroll pleaded not guilty to two other charges against him, including swallowing a package believed to contain a controlled drug with the intent to pervert the course of justice.

At Kilmarnock Sheriff Court earlier this month, he was sentenced to 136 days in prison.
