A POLISH couple’s relationship ending has resulted in a man appearing in the dock accused of aggressive behaviour.

Adrian Twarog was unhappy when his partner broke up with him in August.

Twarog shouted and swore at the distressed woman before calling her “a freak”. He also threw items about the woman’s property at Artillery Park in Haddington.

The Polish national appeared in the dock alongside an interpreter at Edinburgh Sheriff Court last Friday, where the court heard that the woman was forced to call the police due to her ex’s behaviour.

When officers arrived at the home, they found that 21-year-old Twarog had left the area but he was soon found nearby and arrested.

Solicitor James McMackin told the court that his client was an agricultural worker in the county and the couple’s argument started after the woman said she had wanted to go back to Poland.

The lawyer said his client, whose address was given as c/o Paterson Bell solicitors in Edinburgh, was a first offender and that he was “remorseful” over how he had behaved that evening.

Mr McMackin said the woman had informed him “she has no bad feelings” towards Twarog and it had been an “emotional time” for both parties.

Sheriff Adrian Cottam said that due to his young age and lack of previous offending, he was content to warn Twarog of his future behaviour and handed out an admonition.

Twarog pleaded guilty to behaving in a threatening or abusive manner by shouting, swearing and behaving aggressively towards his former partner at an address at Artillery Park on August 5.
