Bail for teenager whose fit of temper landed him in court

A TEENAGER “lost his temper” after being refused entry to a nightclub.

Eighteen-year-old Cameron Lyon, of Cheviot Road, was unable to produce ID, so was refused entry to Gemini nightclub in Kelso.

“He lost his temper, and began to shout and swear at staff,” explained procurator fiscal Graham Fraser.

“Police attended and tried to calm him down, and he was told to go home, but he shouted and caused a scene. He then struggled with officers and was taken into custody.”

Defence solicitor Mat Patrick said his client had spent two nights in custody.

“It was unpleasant behaviour,” conceded Mr Patrick. It was the first time he had been out for some months.”

Lyon admitted behaving in a threatening or abusive manner, shouting and swearing, and struggling with police, at Mill Wynd, Kelso, on Novem-
ber 18.

He was released on bail to appear at Jedburgh Sheriff Court on May 17, after sen-
tence was deferred for six months.

“You are not out of the woods yet,” Sheriff Mhari Mactaggart warned him.
