A 29-year-old man who admitted six offences on indictment at Selkirk Sheriff Court has been remanded in custody.

John Chapman pleaded guilty to behaving in a threatening or abusive manner at a house in Forest Avenue, Galashiels, on June 24 by carrying out a search of the premises and threatening to assault others.

He also admitted being in possession of offensive weapons, namely a screwdriver, hammer and knives, spitting over a police vehicle and causing damage to a cell at Hawick Police Station and threatening to assault police officers.

Sentence was deferred until September 30 at Jedburgh Sheriff Court and Chapman, who offered an address in Coldstream, was remanded in custody after a motion for bail was refused.
