Man accused of CS spray and stun gun assault

A man is to stand trial accused of chasing another man down a street while attacking him with CS spray and a stun gun.

Prosecutors allege Stephen Hartley also punctured tyres on two cars belonging to Thomas Murray last May.

He is alleged to have chased Mr Murray down Arbroath High Street the following day after discharging the weapons at him.

Mr Hartley, 28, of Arbroath, denies a total of seven charges.

He is also accused of being concerned in the supply of ecstasy in Monifieth between 31 March and 23 May last year.

Sheriff Alastair Carmichael continued the case for a further pre-trial hearing.
