A man has been fined and placed under a night-time curfew for a series of offences that included an assault.

Elgin Sheriff Court heard yesterday that Thomas McLean turned up drunk at the home of one of his relatives at about 4.30pm on November 3.

After being denied entry to the house, the 26-year-old punched the relative's boyfriend.

McLean then tried to drag the man out of a taxi which had turned up at the address.

Damage costing £450 was caused to the vehicle's bodywork in the incident.

The taxi drove off and McLean also left the scene, but then he returned a short time later to the property and threw a stone which broke a downstairs window, costing £300.

The defendant had pleaded guilty at an earlier court appearance to one charge of assault and another of criminal damage.

He was fined £700 and ordered to stay inside his home on St Margaret's Crescent, Lossiemouth, between the hours of 9pm-6am for the next six months.

McLean was also ordered to carry out 150 hours of unpaid work for the community.
