A MAN has been jailed for driving off in his partner’s car without her permission.

Jonathan Brown of Cameron Drive in Auchinleck had accepted his fate before court began on Tuesday, April 9 according to his solicitor Tony Currie.

He told Ayr Sheriff Court: “He is candid enough to say he is not ready to return to the community.”

The 25-year-old took the woman’s car keys and made off in her car without her on March 15.

He had a previous order in relation to driving under the influence of drink and drugs which he failed to comply to.

Brown then became aggressive in Kilmarnock Police Office and was remanded in custody.

Sheriff Desmond Leslie sentenced Brown to eight months in prison and disqualified him from driving for three years.
