Court / Remanded in custody until December

A MAN from Lerwick has been remanded in custody for the next couple of weeks after admitting repeatedly jumping in front of motor vehicles in the town.

Grant Huntington, of Ladies Drive, appeared from custody at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Friday to admit behaving in a threatening or abusive manner on various occasions on 4 November.

The 31-year-old pleaded guilty to repeatedly jumping in front of moving motor vehicles on Ladies Drive, causing them to take evasive action. He also admitted blocking the path of a motor vehicle and banging on its window.

The offence was committed while Huntington was on bail.

Honorary sheriff Malcolm Bell decided to defer sentence and taking into account Huntington’s past record, refused bail.

“Frankly I’m left with no alternative but to remand you in custody,” he said.

The case was deferred until 4 December when Huntington will appear in court on other matters.
