A GREENOCK woman pushed another female into the road and caused her to be struck by an oncoming vehicle.

Antoinette McArthur, 27, could now be jailed for the offence after twice flouting community-based sentences.

McArthur, of South Street, also shouted, swore, acted aggressively, made threats and struggled violently with police.

She was given a fresh community payback order [CPO] in September after breaching the first one but failed within a month to comply with it.

Her lawyer, David Tod, told a review hearing at Greenock Sheriff Court: "It can't be said that she's covered herself in glory."

Sheriff Andrew McIntyre said: "The order was imposed only in September and the [breach] report couldn't be worse."

McArthur assaulted her victim — who was hit on the body by the vehicle — on March 18 last year.

Solicitor Mr Tod said: "Her position is that she wishes to do the order, but I accept that is not evidenced by this first review.

"She would like one more opportunity and if she does not comply then there is nothing that can be said on her behalf."

He added: "She has genuine mental health difficulties and it would be an advantage to have a full report."

Sheriff McIntyre said: "The previous order was breached and this is a new order.

"She's now at the end of the line as far as the CPO is concerned.

"There are a whole litany of problems and failures to comply."

The sheriff called for an updated background report and cancelled the CPO, stating that it was 'no longer an option'.

McArthur — who committed her offences in Kilwinning in Ayrshire — is due to be re-sentenced on the matters on November 20.
