A Ross-shire man is to go on trial accused of a catalogue of alleged threatening and abusive behaviour.
Patrick Stewart (24) is said to have committed multiple offences around the Evanton and Invergordon area in June.
Prosecutors say that on June 20 this year he was of threatening and abusive behaviour in Inverbreakie Drive when he entered his ex-partner’s house uninvited.
He is said to have been in possession of a glass bottle and repeatedly shouting and swearing, acting in an aggressive manner and uttering threats of violence before smashing the glass bottle.
He is also alleged to have damaged a car on June 20 on Teandallon Place, Evanton, on the same date by pulling the wing mirror off and repeatedly striking the window.
He is further alleged to have damaged another car and throwing a plant pot.
Court charges further claim that on June 20 that at Saltburn Woods, Invergordon, he assaulted a man aged 65 by striking him on the body.
And that he allegedly was of threatening and abusive behaviour by challenging others to fight.
He is also accused of behaving in a threatening and abusive manner by repeatedly shouting, swearing, acting in an aggressive manner, uttering threats of violence and kicking the cage in a police vehicle on June 20.
Two more charges state that Stewart, of Marybank, allegedly assaulted two police constables on the same day by attempting to headbutt them.
He appeared from custody at Inverness Sheriff Court where he denied all charges against him.
He will go on trial later this year.
Stewart was released on bail with the special conditions that he does not approach the alleged victims and stays away from Evanton and Invergordon.
He is on curfew from 8pm to 6am.
