A PORT Seton man who locked himself in a bedroom and refused to come out has been placed on supervision for six months.

Andrew Campbell, 30, barricaded himself in the room at the village’s Wemyss House and continued to play loud music despite being requested to turn it down.

Campbell also acted aggressively towards police officers and climbed up onto the building’s roof during the incident, which took place last November.

Campbell also shouted abusive remarks and threats of violence, and challenged officers to fight with him.

He appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court last Tuesday, where Sheriff Noble heard it would prove difficult for Campbell to pay a fine to mark the offence.

Instead, the sheriff placed him on six months of supervision as an alternative to paying the monetary penalty.

Campbell admitted behaving in a threatening or abusive manner at Wemyss House, Port Seton, on November 14 last year.
