A Hawick man has appeared from custody at Selkirk Sheriff Court charged with being involved in a domestic-related disturbance on New Year’s Day.

Martin Charlotte, of Silverbuthall Road, denied behaving in a threatening or abusive manner in Hillend Drive, Hawick.

The 35-year-old pleaded guilty to a charge of struggling violently with police officers, however.

Sentence was deferred for that offence until the outcome of his trial at Jedburgh Sheriff Court on Tuesday, February 6.
