An­der­son is also charged with en­gag­ing in a course of con­duct which caused Roddy Bal­four to suf­fer fear and alarm on a num­ber of oc­ca­sions in Mor­gan Street between Septem­ber 30 and Novem­ber 14, both last year.

He al­legedly ges­tic­u­lated to­wards Mr Bal­four, phoned him, chal­lenged him to a fight, threat­ened him with vi­o­lence, threat­ened to dam­age his car and threat­ened to dam- age his house.

An­der­son is fur­ther ac­cused of pos­sess­ing and dis­play­ing a hand­gun to Nadine Kel­bie in Ann Street on Novem­ber 10 last year. He also al­legedly drove in Mor­gan Place in an er­ratic man­ner and re­peat­edly stared i n win­dows on Novem­ber 17 last year.

An­der­son is also ac­cused of pos­sess­ing a firearm in Mor­gan Street on Novem­ber 19 l ast year with the i nten­tion of caus­ing Mr Bal­four to be­lieve that un­law­ful vi­o­lence would be used against him.

An­der­son de­nies all of the charges against him.

A first diet was con­tin­ued un­til Tues­day in or­der for fur­ther prepa­ra­tions to be made by An­der­son’s de­fence team and he was re­leased on bail mean­time.

A FOR­MER sol­dier has or­gan­ised an 11km Re­mem­brance Day char­ity run.

Martin Brady, who is now a per­sonal trainer at Ur­banFit in Dundee, has or­gan­ised the Run to Re­mem­ber event to help raise funds for the Help for He­roes cam­paign.

Martin (pic­tured) said: “I thought this would be a great way to raise some money for Help for He­roes and some­thing a bit dif­fer­ent to com­mem­o­rate Re­mem­brance Day on Novem­ber 11.
