Michael Brown, of Shandwick Place in Edinburgh, pleaded guilty to behaving in a threatening or abusive manner at the Eildon Road property on July 28.

The court was told that Brown was on bail at the time of that offence.

Sheriff Peter Paterson said he had no alternative but to impose a custodial sentence due to Brown’s record.

His jail sentence was backdated to October 8.
