A Caithness man is to stand trail later this year accused of multiple offences.

Clifford Wright (45) is accused of behaving in a threatening and abusive manner by entering a property in Glen Nevis Drive, Fort William on June 20 without consent.

He is further alleged to have failed to provide police with personal details on the same date.

And prosecutors claim that the following day, June 21, he resisted arrest by tensing up his body to avoid being put in a police vehicle.

He is also accused of acting in an aggressive manner by shouting, swearing and kicking the cage in the police vehicle.

Wright, of Howe Croft, Lyth, appeared at Inverness Sheriff Court on Tuesday when he denied the charges against him.

He was released on bail and will stand trial in October.
