Prison after he was caught with ba­ton

Wishaw Press - - HOLIDAY HELL -

A Mother­well man has been put be­hind bars after he was con­victed of pub­lic or­der and of­fen­sive weapon charges.

John Gray, of Airth Court, ad­mit­ted shout­ing abuse, strug­gling with po­lice of­fi­cers and mak­ing threats .

The of­fences took place at a house in Hunt­lyter­race, Shotts, on July 1.

After trial at Hamil­ton Sher­iff Court, the 36-year-old was found guilty of hav­ing an of­fen­sive weapon - a me­tal ba­ton - in the Aldi car park in Ma­son Street, Mother­well, while on bail on July 24.

In court last week, Gray was sen­tenced to four months in prison as a re­sult of his ac­tions.
