A Musselburgh man is now back with his wife of 30 years following an aggressive row.
Steven McIntosh shouted and swore during the incident and following a court appearance in January was told he was not allowed to contact his wife until the case resolved.
McIntosh, 10 Galt Crescent, had pleaded guilty from custody, but the special condition was removed in February “to allow him to return home to reside with his wife”.
Solicitor Susan Gibson said McIntosh, 53, was now back living with his wife and the “couple have been together for 30 plus years”.
McIntosh had admitted to behaving in a threatening or abusive manner by shouting, swearing and acting in an aggressive manner at an address at MacBeth Moir Road, Musselburgh, on 12 January this year.
Sheriff Peter Braid said as McIntosh had been a first offender and had been of good behaviour for six months he would admonish him.
