A KELSO woman, who got involved in a struggle with a pensioner resulting in him falling to the ground and breaking his glasses, has been ordered to be of good behaviour for six months.

Karen Weatherhead, 42, of Inchmyre, pleaded guilty to behaving in a threatening or abusive manner on a bus in Kelso and in Inchmyre on May 1.

The court was told that an argument started between Weatherhead and the 67-year-old man while they were on board the bus.

The argument continued after they left the bus and there was a struggle resulting in the man falling.

Sheriff Colin Dunipace said: "Whatever the background is between the pair of you, this was unacceptable behaviour."

Sentence was deferred at Jedburgh Sheriff Court until March 30.
