A MAN who was found in bed with a woman he was on a bail order to stay away from has been fined £700 for the breach.

Andrew Tweedley was caught sleeping with his girlfriend at the time at a house in Port Glasgow — by her disgruntled father.

Tweedley, 30, later refused to put his clothes on and leave after police arrived and he ended up struggling with officers.

Prosecutor Raeesa Ahmed told Greenock Sheriff Court: "The woman's father was aware of the bail conditions.

"He woke his daughter and the accused and instructed them to leave and both refused.

"The father then contacted the police."

The court heard previously how Tweedley declared: "I've done nothing wrong — all I'm guilty of is having a heart."

He committed the bail breach on February 19 last year, 17 days after being issued with an instruction not to approach or contact the woman in any way.

Tweedley had also been barred from entering Greenock other than for court or medical appointments.

Fiscal depute Miss Ahmed said: "The accused became hostile and refused to co-operate and dress himself.

"Police then tried to arrest him and took hold of his left hand and tried to apply handcuffs.

"The accused tensed his arm and pulled it up to his chest and stated, 'Get you're hands off me, I've not done anything wrong'."

Tweedley, whose address was not given in court, had been on deferred sentence to be of good behaviour after admitting the breach last year.

Defence lawyer Gerry Keenan said: "It would appear from what he tells me that drink is a feature.

"He has kept faith with the court by staying out of trouble."
