Soldier appears on Hawick attack charges
A serving soldier has appeared in court charged with two attacks in a town in the Scottish Borders.
Scott McQuillin, 35, of Dreghorn Drive, Edinburgh, appeared on a petition alleging he assaulted a man to his severe injury in Hawick on 28 August.
He is also accused of assaulting the owner of the town's Drumlanrig Bar and committing a breach of the peace.
He made no plea or declaration at Jedburgh Sheriff Court and the case was continued.
Mr McQuillin was released on bail with a special condition not to enter the Drumlanrig Bar.
