A DISRUPTIVE neighbour made threats after a report was made about the racket coming from her Dunfermline home.

After police had left, Deborah Bradley ran up a common stairwell and began striking the door of the person who had made the complaint, threatening her.

Noisy neighbour Bradley has now been allowed to return to her home after a two-month absence but has been warned she will face serious consequences if there is any repeat of her antics.

Bradley, 22, of Golfdrum Street, appeared in the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

She admitted that on June 26, at Golfdrum Street, Dunfermline, she attended at a property occupied by her neighbour, struck the front door, shouted, swore, made a threat and behaved in an aggressive manner.

Depute fiscal Dev Kapadia said a neighbour contacted the police at around 11.15pm having put up with the commotion coming from Bradley’s home for more than three hours.

“This was loud music, banging and shouting, which was reported to the police. Two officers attended and could hear the loud music and shouting for themselves. Because of the noise, it took some time to get the attention of the accused.

“She then began shouting and swearing, refusing to come to the door. She shouted: ‘You can’t come inside without a warrant’.

“The police told her to turn down the music and left. Five minutes later, the neighbour heard somebody running up the stairwell, shouting, swearing, making a threat and striking on the door.

“At 12.30am, the police went back. There was still loud music and voices coming from the accused’s home.”

She was out in the street by this time and when police spotted her, she ran away but was quickly apprehended.

Defence solicitor Stephen Morrison said his client had not been able to stay in her home for the past two months because of bail conditions. “She’s keen to return there,” he added.

“She had been drinking and appears to have taken umbrage when someone, quite rightly, contacted the police about the noise,” said Mr Morrison.

Sheriff James MacDonald said he would give Bradley an opportunity to prove she could behave herself by allowing her to return home and deferring sentence for three months until December 11.

“Whether your landlord thinks you’re a suitable person to be living there may be another matter but that would be for a civil court,” he added.

He warned Bradley that even if she was of good behaviour “that won’t be an end to it” because a sentence will be imposed. If she was not of good behaviour then it would be a serious matter, he told her.
