A MAN is to stand trial for trying to feed sausage rolls to police horses.
• Accused adopted “aggressive stance” when told by police to put pastries away.
• Trial date set for February 2013
Francis Kelly is accused of giving the pastries to the animals that lead to him being arrested.
Prosecutors allege he behaved in a “threatening or abusive manner.
The 41 year-old will now stand trial next year.
The incident is said to have taken place in Pollokshaws Road, Glasgow, on 26 September this year.
The breach of the peace accusation also claims Kelly “adopted an aggressive stance” towards the officers in charge of the horses when told to put the sausage rolls away.
It is not known how Kelly, of the city’s Govanhill, initially came into contact with the horses.
Kelly denies the charge. He will return to Glasgow’s Justice of the Peace court next February for trial.
