A MAN was remanded in custody for a psychiatric report after admitting a bail breach because he wanted to cut his nails.
Inverness Sheriff Court was told George Wright (26) had been banned from visiting a house in Beauly.
But he went there on June 1 this year to collect some of his belongings, including a pair of nail clippers.
The court heard that he told his solicitor, John MacColl: "How else am I supposed to cut my nails."
Mr MacColl told Sheriff David Sutherland: "This man needs social work intervention. He has some mental health issues and lacks comprehension."
Wright, of Wyvis Drive, Nairn, had sentence deferred until July 31 for a psychiatric report and was further remanded.
