Man, 44, de­nies throw­ing bot­tle

Evening Express (City Final) - - News -

A MAN has ap­peared in court ac­cused of throw­ing a bot­tle into the crowd dur­ing an Aberdeen v Rangers match at Pit­to­drie. David Roy ap­peared yes­ter­day at Aberdeen Sher­iff Court in con­nec­tion with the al­leged in­ci­dent on Au­gust 5. The 44-year-old, of More­field Road, Glas­gow, is fac­ing a charge of cul­pa­bly and reck­lessly throw­ing a bot­tle into an area of peo­ple within the South Stand home sec­tion, nar­rowly miss­ing spec­ta­tors. Roy, rep­re­sented in court by de­fence agent Mike Monro, de­nied the charge against him. De­pute fis­cal Katy Begg said the Crown would not op­pose bail but asked for spe­cial con­di­tions to be im­posed to pre­vent him vis­it­ing Pit­to­drie Sta­dium. Sher­iff Ian Wal­lace granted Roy bail with the re­quested con­di­tion and fixed dates for a trial in March and a pre­lim­i­nary hear­ing in Fe­bru­ary. Po­lice pre­vi­ously re­leased a CCTV im­age of a man un­der­stood to have been stand­ing in the Rangers sec­tion of the sta­dium as part of an ap­peal. The in­ci­dent al­legedly hap­pened shortly be­fore the end of the first league game of the sea­son, which ended 1-1, fol­low­ing Bruce An­der­son’s late equaliser for the home side.
