A YOUNG man who threatened to kill police officers has been ordered to carry out some unpaid slog.

On Thursday at Alloa Sheriff Court, Ryan Douglas admitted shouting, swearing, acting in an aggressive manner and uttering threats of violence at his home address on November 4 last year.

Fiscal depute Matthew Kerr told the court that police received a call from the ambulance service requesting assistance at around 12.30am.

Officers arrived at 12.45am, to which 25-year-old Douglas threatened: "Get out of my f**king house or else I'll kill you."

Sheriff David Mackie sentenced the accused, of Alloa's Maple Court, to a Community Payback Order with 80 hours of unpaid work to be completed within three months.
