The 23-year-old, from Linlithgow, shouted and swore at Sheriff Peter Hammond when he was locked up for five-and-a-half months yesterday.
His face contorted with rage, Mullen interrupted the sheriff’s sentencing statement to claim he had done nothing wrong – even though he had pled guilty to injuring a pub-goer by smashing a glass tumbler and breaking a barmaid’s finger by throwing a bar stool at her.
He shouted over the sheriff: “I go to my anger management. I’m trying my hardest. I’ve asked for one more chance to make a go of things. I don’t drink, I don’t do drugs, all I do is walk my dog.
“I’m trying to sort myself out here. Gie’s a chance.”You couldn't make it up, could you?
As Mullen became more and more enraged a police officer went to help a G4S security guard control him in the dock.
The accused struggled violently with the two men as he was led, still protesting loudly, to the cells. He could be heard kicking the courtroom door.
He also shouted and swore for several minutes until more security guards brought him under control and took him down to the cells.Or maybe they do anger management differently across the border?
