Breath test case continued

A MAN has appeared from custody at Lerwick Sheriff Court accused of failing to provide breath samples to police in the centre of Lerwick at the weekend.

Paul Manson, 44, of Thistle Court, Virkie, had his case continued without plea by Sheriff Philip Mann on Monday afternoon.

He is accused of failing, without reasonable excuse, to provide a preliminary breath test to a constable who had a reasonable expectation that he was under the influence of alcohol or another drug at the Hillhead car park between Quendale Lane and Pitt Lane on Friday.

Manson is also accused of failing to provide two breath specimens for analysis at Lerwick Police Station on Saturday.

The case was continued until 24 May and he was granted bail.
