STALKED BY CONTROL FREAK EX; FORMER COP PLEADS GUILTY; Emma, 20, left terrified by pest.

Byline: Ashlie Mcanally reporters@dailyrecord.co.uk

A POLICE officer "wore down" his terrified young girlfriend with a relentless campaign of stalking.

James Addison, 21, bombarded Emma Coulter with up to 190 calls a day after she dumped him.

He changed settings on his phone to bypass a block against it. Addison also sent about 1000 emails - many of them angry and threatening - to shop worker Emma after their break-up.

He objected to her work uniform, abused her verbally and turned up at her home uninvited. On one occasion, he refused to believe she wasn't home and prowled around inside.

The moron would use social media to monitor her movements. Addison, from Cowie, Stirlingshire, also threatened to post pictures of Emma online.

His twisted behaviour made her feel "fearful and constantly upset and tearful". Glasgow Sheriff Court heard how the couple got together in 2014 when Emma, 20, was still at school.

But, just over two years later, she brought it to an end because of his jealous and abusive behaviour.

Yesterday Addison, who has quit the police, admitted stalking Emma between last January and September.

Sheriff Alan MacKenzie ordered the former Lothian and Borders officer to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work, and told him he will be supervised for 12 months.

Addison must also pay his victim PS750 in compensation and not contact her for two years.
