The court was told most of the verbal threats were peppered by “expletives”.
Prosecutor Malcolm Isherwood told the court that Logan shouted the threats from his house and when he met the neighbour outside, he threatened to rip the victims head off on more than one occasion, he was very abusive and made a threat to burn the victims car with him inside.
Police arrested Logan on October 27, when arrested he kept making threats about his neighbour and kicked the cage inside the police van, and kept shouting he would “rip the neighbours head off”, while in custody he threatened to phone someone and the neighbour would “get done”.
