Caley player charged with causing a disturbance
One of Inverness Caledonian Thistle’s 2015 Scottish Cup heroes is facing a charge of causing a disturbance in Inverness City centre and that the offence was aggravated by prejudice of sexual orientation.
Josh Meekings has been charged with behaving in a threatening or abusive manner likely to cause fear or alarm by shouting and swearing, challenging people to fight, uttering offensive remarks and behaving in an aggressive manner towards police.
The incident is alleged to have taken place in Bridge Street on December 20 last year.
Meekings (23) of 3 Inshes Mews, Inverness, was not present in court today when the case called before Sheriff David Sutherland.
His solicitor Rory Gowans asked for the case to be continued without plea meantime and it will call again on April 14.
Meekings played a central defensive role in the Scottish Cup winning team last year when ICT beat Falkirk 2-1 at Hampden Park.
