Drunk Renfrew man tears off car license plate and verbally abuses pregnant girlfriend at family wedding


A Renfrew man who had to be kicked out of a family marriage due to his aggressive and drunken ways has been fined.

Assistant Tax Attorney Caitlin O’Hare told Paisley Sheriff Court: “On October 4, the accused and the plaintiff were at a wedding at the Busby Hotel.

“At around 9 pm, the accused declared that he wanted to go home.

“At this point he was extremely drunk.

“The complainant, Ms. Williams, was sober because she is pregnant with her child.

“She had led the couple to the wedding that day.

“At around 10 pm Ms Williams was pulled over by a staff member and asked if McKeeve was her boyfriend as he screamed and damaged a car in the parking lot.

“Ms. Williams saw McKeeve next to the car and saw the car’s license plate broken and lying on the ground in pieces.

“McKeeve saw Williams and shouted, ‘Get in the fucking car, you big ass,’ ‘Don’t contact me, you get nothing from me, you’ll be yours.’

“Ms. Williams returned to the hotel and the staff locked the doors.

“The accused went to another door to ask for the keys to the car and shortly thereafter ordered a taxi.

“At 11:45 pm, the police arrived and he was arrested and taken to Govan Police Station. “

Defense officer Ms. Galbraith explained that McKeeve usually lives with the complainant.

She said: “McKeeve is living with her mother at the moment due to bail conditions, but is living normally with the complainant.

“The couple have been in a relationship for three years and that’s good otherwise.

“The couple were at a family wedding and had been drinking alcohol.

“He doesn’t drink normally and felt bad and wanted to go home.

“Her partner is very pregnant and has to give birth in two weeks.

“This is an isolated incident and he apologizes profusely.

“He also immediately paid for the repair of the vehicle the next day.

“He understands he was totally down and he’s ashamed of the way he talked to his partner.

“She wants the relationship to continue.”

Sheriff Gillian Craig said: “This must have been alarming for everyone involved.”

Sheriff Craig fined McKeeve £ 420 to be paid at £ 40 per week and imposed a non-harassment order for a period of 12 months.
