A man has been fined a total of £200 for challenging others to a fight and breaching his restriction of liberty order.

Brendan Wilson of 7 Kerrera Lodge, Oban, admitted shouting and swearing, and acting in an aggressive manner on November 3 last year when he appeared in Oban Sheriff Court on Monday January 13.

The 24-year-old also admitted to breaching his bail conditions by being outside after his curfew.

Wilson’s defence solicitor, Kevin McGinness, said he regrets his behaviour, stating alcohol was involved.

Sheriff Patrick Hughes said: ‘I am satisfied this is an aberration on your part and I do not expect it to be repeated.’

He fined Wilson £120 for acting in an aggressive manner and £80 for his breach of bail.
