Man tried to punch partner

A NIGHT OUT aimed at rekindling his relationship with his partner ended with David Milligan grabbing her by the arms and swinging two missed punches at her.

The confrontation was witnessed by passers-by in Commercial Road, on July 31, and police were called.

Defence lawyer Ian Burke told Selkirk Sherif Court that assault victim Danielle Mooney still wanted their relationship to continue and they are due to get married next year. Milligan, 28, of Branxholme Road, was ordered to be of good behaviour for nine months.

He was also fined £85 for failing turn up at court.
