A MELROSE woman who went "berserk" in her own home during a bust-up with her partner has been placed on supervision for the next two years.

Nyesha Mercer pleaded guilty to behaving in a threatening or abusive manner at Selkirk Sheriff Court following a disturbance at her Eildon Crescent home on October 28.

The 22-year-old admitted throwing and breaking items, resulting in her partner Daniel Whigham being injured.

Procurator fiscal Graham Fraser said police received a call from Mr Whigham to say she had "gone berserk in the house" and asked if they could attend to take her away.

When police arrived on the scene they found broken glass and a picture frame on the floor.

Defence lawyer Ed Hulme said his client had been experiencing mental health difficulties.

A two year community pay back order was imposed as an alternative to custody.
