A wedding guest has been hit with a £250 court bill for making abusive comments towards others invited to witness a friend’s nuptials.
Andrew O’Connor also shouted and swore and struggled with police officers during that incident at the Clovenfords Hotel on April 5.
The 35-year-old, of Church Square in Galashiels, pleaded guilty at Selkirk Sheriff Court to a charge of behaving in a threatening or abusive manner.
The court was told he was ejected from the hotel due to his behaviour but then made threatening comments towards police officers.
He was fined £200 and ordered to pay £50 compensation to his friend’s new bride.
