A MAN from Sandwick has been released on bail with special conditions after appearing at court from custody on three charges.

Steven Nicholson, of Veester Hill, pleaded not guilty to all of the charges when he appeared at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Friday.

The 34-year-old was accused of a domestic assault allegedly carried out on 2 December.

Nicholson also faced a charge of assaulting a police officer by punching him on the head and attempting to bite him, as well as struggling with the constable.

Defence agent Tommy Allan argued that his client should be released on bail, something which procurator fiscal Duncan Mackenzie “marginally” opposed.

He was bailed with two special conditions, with a trial date set for 4 February.
