Six accused of Thurso assaults

DISTURBANCES at two Thurso nightspots plus other weekend arrests gave police one of their busiest spells of the year and meant that the overflow had to be accommodated in cells at Wick.
Six accused appeared at Wick Sheriff Court today, charged varying numbers of assaults at Top Joe’s and Skinandi’s.
The six, from Falkirk, unless otherwise stated, were Anthony Sharp ,48, 6 Wilson Avenue, Camelon, Robert Forsyth, 44, 96 Forgie Crescent, Maddison, Ross Anderson, 19, of 3 Culloch Road, Slamannan, William Beattie, 24, and brother, Steven Beattie 21, both of 4 Wilson Avenue, Camelon, Donald McCaffer, 19, 5 Coll Place, Grangemouth.
The allegations range from a single charge of assault to four charges and allege punching and in some cases kicking people, on Saturday. The accused pleaded not guilty and were granted bail. They will return to court for their trials on November 29 and December 14.

Breached bail

A WOMAN who breached bail by visiting her husband, was fined 100.
Kim McTeir, 43, of Pilot Row, Papigoe, appeared from custody and admitted the offence. She was granted bail in connection with a domestic matter on September 3 on condition that she did not approach her husband Thomas.
The court was told that police found her with him at their home, on Saturday. It appeared she had been made welcome by her husband. Both were in an intoxicated state.
