Teenagerdenies danger driving
A teenager has appeared in court accused of driving dangerously, colliding with a cop car and putting a policewoman in danger.
Findlay McKay, 19, said to be of no fixed address in Annan, appeared at Dumfries Sheriff Court accused of 15 charges alleged to have taken place earlier in the week.
He denied behaving in a threatening manner at Windermere Road in Annan, acting aggressively and making sectarian remarks, driving carelessly and colliding with metal railings in Annan Road, Eastriggs.
McKay also denied stealing a car at Pretoria Road in Eastriggs and driving dangerously there and at Annan at excessive speed, failing to keep the car under control and colliding with a stationary police vehicle.
He denied failing to stop when requested by cops and, after colliding with the police car, driving on and endangering the policewoman who had a hold of the door handle.
McKay also pleaded not guilty to resisting officers and tearing a blanket at the Loreburn Street Police Station in Dumfries.
He offered pleas of guilty to breaking into premises in Eastriggs and stealing a safe, a money collection box, and the contents of a tub containing money; stealing a vehicle there, driving without a valid licence and using the vehicle in Eastriggs without consent.
McKay also offered to plead guilty to driving the second vehicle while unfit through drink or drugs, driving without insurance and without a licence.
The fiscal depute, however, said the offer of the guilty pleas was not acceptable and trial was set for February.
