A Thurso taxi driver who posted offensive comments about his ex-partner on social media has been given a chance to show he can behave.
Peter Thomson (55) admitted a reduced charge of breach of the peace at Wick Sheriff Court last week. The offence occurred between July and August.
Thomson and Evelyn Bain separated earlier this year. Fiscal David Barclay said that the Thomson's actions had, perhaps, been prompted by the fact that Ms Bain had decided to move on with her life and entered a new relationship.
The court was told that Thomson, of Olrig Street, Thurso, had apologised for his behaviour and given an assurance there would be no repeat of it.
He was made subject to a four-month good behaviour order.
