The Evening Times reports on the community sentence imposed by Glasgow Sheriff Court on a man who smashed the break cover of a fire alarm and racially abused staff at an Indian take-away because they would not allow him to use their phone.
Glasgow Sheriff Court heard Liam Evans, 23, committed the offence at halal Indian takeaway shop, Spice Routes, on Duke Street, Glasgow on February 1 2015.
Evans and a co-accused, who was not in the dock, entered the take-away and asked to use the telephone. When staff refused their request, Evans shouted at the staff: “You f**king black b*****d f*****g a*******s.”
Evans also smashed the cover of the shop’s fire alarm as he left the shop, the court heard.
Sheriff Raymond McMenamin sentenced Evans to complete 160 hours of unpaid work in the
community within six months.
Evans faced an additional charge of failing to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court without a reasonable excuse for which he was admonished.
