A Fort William man has had his sentence deferred to allow for the preparation of a Criminal Justice Social Work Report.

Iain Roy, 34, of the town’s Camanachd Crescent, had previously pleaded guilty by letter to three charges.

Roy admitted that on December 8, 2018, in the car park of Morrison’s supermarket in Fort William, and later at the town’s police station, he had behaved in a threatening or abusive manner likely to cause fear or alarm by shouting, swearing and uttering threats of violence to police witnesses.

He further pleaded guilty to resisting, obstructing and hindering four police officers by attempting to pull his arms away from them and kicking out with his legs.

He also admitted possessing of cannabis resin at the police station.

Sheriff Eilidh MacDonald told Roy she would defer sentence until May 21 for the preparation of a social work background report.
