Park Crescent in Newton.

Gary Currie, giving an address in Kelso, had previously pleaded guilty at Edinburgh Sheriff Court to a charge of behaving in a threatening or abusive manner at a house in Park Crescent in Newtown in March.

The 31-year-old, a chef, had a not-guilty plea to a charge of assaulting his partner, Jasmine Denholm, accepted by the crown, however.

The court was told that the couple had been drinking at home but, after two bottles of vodka had been consumed, an argument broke out and he shouted and swore at her, as well as being abusive.
