John Reilly to face portable toilet topple trial

A man is to stand trial accused of toppling over a portable toilet while another person was still inside.

John Reilly, 22, is accused of "culpably and recklessly" pushing over the toilet, causing it to fall over.

The alleged incident, in Stirling's Kings Park last summer, is said to have caused Dylan Gardiner - the man in the toilet - "unnecessary distress and alarm".

Mr Reilly, from Bo'ness, denies culpable and reckless conduct.

The incident was said to have taken place on 18 June 2010.

Stirling Sheriff Court heard that the prosecution and defence were both ready for trial, and witnesses had been cited.

Police are still looking for Kirsty McCallum, of Bridgeness, Bo'ness, who is co-accused in the case.

The 25-year-old failed to appear at an earlier hearing in March this year and a warrant was issued for her arrest.

Sheriff Paul Arthurson continued the case until a trial on 22 September.
