Man remanded after breaching protection order

A man who contravened a domestic violence protection order has been remanded into custody.

Michael Williams III, 22, admitted violating the order when he appeared in Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

The court heard that Williams, from Southampton, rode his bike behind the protected person on April 30 and shouted “you’re f*****g up” when they parked by a bus shelter in Devonshire.

Williams apologised for the incident and told the court he had let his emotions get the better of him.

Prosecutor Audley Quallo suggested that Williams be given a suspended prison sentence for the offence.

However, senior magistrate Maxanne Anderson highlighted the seriousness and frequency of domestic violence-related offences.

She ordered that reports be written for Williams before imposing sentence.

Ms Anderson adjourned the case until August 5 and remanded Williams in custody until that time.
