FORMER Hibs striker Leigh Griffiths has been charged following an alleged incident at an Edinburgh supermarket.

Griffiths, 22, was charged with theft, breach of the peace and assault.

It is alleged that on January 26 this year at the Tesco Store in Meadow Place Road, Edinburgh, he stole a quantity of water and juice; shouted, swore and threw items of liquid to the floor; and assaulted an employee in the store, by struggling with him and attempting to punch him on the body.

Griffiths, now back with Wolverhampton Wanderers, was not present when his case was called at Edinburgh Justice of the Peace Court today but his solicitor, Kathleen More, intimated a plea of not guilty.

The case was continued until later this month for Griffiths’ personal appearance.
