The court heard that police were called to Main Street in Tweedmouth on February 6 after concerns were raised about a man near Foulis takeaway shop.

The defendant was abusive to police when they arrived and magistrates were told that members of the public in the vicinity were getting distressed.

He was given a conditional discharge for six months and ordered to pay £85 costs and a £20 surcharge.
