Contribute to support quality local journalism
A Skye fisherman living in Evanton was jailed for four months after admitting a drunken disturbance in the Ross-shire village.
But John MacInnes, who had been bailed to an address in Teandallon Square accused of a breach of bail, will be released from custody imminently as he only serves half his sentence.
MacInnes was remanded for sentence on May 27 and re-appeared before Sheriff Sara Matheson at Inverness Sheriff Court yesterday.
He had pleaded to behaving in a threatening and abusive manner and repeatedly kicking and punching a door at that address on May 26.
He also admitted assaulting a woman there by throwing a can of liquid at her.
MacInnes (26), was on several bail orders at the time.
Defence solicitor Roger Webb told the court: "He suffers from depression and had been drinking when these offences took place."
