A foul-mouthed Aberdeen thug threatened to kill a police officer and rape another’s wife.
Bradley Walker, 21, lost his rag after he was nabbed on a warrant.
He was seen by officers on Union Street at 11.20pm on September 23.
Fiscal depute Kelly Mitchell said when they began to escort him to the van he resisted and struggled violently, “flailing his arms”.
He then “became aggressive” towards the officers – using racial and homophobic language.
He told one officer: “I’m going to murder you. I’m going to stab you.
“I’m going to break into your house and stab your wife.”
Ms Mitchell said he “repeatedly threatened to follow an officer while he was off duty and stab him to death”.
Walker’s threats included that he would break into their houses and rape and kill the officer’s family members during his two-and-a-half hour tantrum.
In a separate incident he also went into Greggs at 55 Union Street at 7.40am on August 11 and made threats towards a manager.
Walker previously pled guilty to struggling violently with police and making threats towards officers and their families. He also admitted threatening a manager at Greggs and assaulting two women and challenging police to fight.
Walker further admitted failing to appear at court on two occasions.
Defence agent Peter Shepherd said his “utterly appalling” behaviour was linked to substance misuse and alcohol. He added they were “idle threats”.
Sheriff Margaret Hodge ordered Walker, of Waulkmill Crescent, Aberdeen, to carry out 75 hour of unpaid work and be supervised for 12 months.
