Man fined for threat to club bounc­ers

Evening Express (City Final) - - News -

A DRUNKEN reveller threat­ened to have door staff stabbed af­ter they re­fused to let him into a night­club. Ricky Walker, 28, turned ag­gres­sive when bounc­ers at the Un­der­ground Klub would not let him in due to his “heav­ily in­tox­i­cated state” at 2.20am on Sep­tem­ber 16. Yes­ter­day he was fined £600 when he ap­peared in front of Sher­iff Ian Wal­lace at Aberdeen Sher­iff Court. Fis­cal de­pute Felic­ity Mer­son said: “He pointed his fin­ger at the door stew­ards and made threat­en­ing ges­tures with his arms, walk­ing back and forth be­tween the lo­cus and the pave­ment on the other side of the street.” Po­lice ar­rived shortly af­ter and heard Walker telling the bounc­ers he had “a lot of friends” and they would be “stabbed”. Ms Mer­son added Walker was “warned to de­sist but his ag­gres­sive be­hav­iour con­tin­ued” and he used a ho­mo­pho­bic term. Walker, of Tul­los Cir­cle, Aberdeen, pled guilty to shout­ing, swear­ing, mak­ing abu­sive re­marks and mak­ing threats of vi­o­lence. The of­fence was ag­gra­vated by prej­u­dice re­lat­ing to sex­ual ori­en­ta­tion. De­fence agent Les Green said his client had a “lim­ited record”. He added: “He apol­o­gises for it.” Walker also pled guilty to fail­ing to ap­pear at court on an­other date, for which he was ad­mon­ished.
