Highland police officers admit teenage girls charge
Two police officers have admitted behaving in a threatening manner towards two teenage girls.
The girls had been detained after a disturbance at a residential care home in Easter Ross.
Tain Sheriff Court was told that they were handcuffed and driven to a farmyard by PC Robert Ovenstone and PC Stuart Kelman.
Ovenstone also admitted forcing the girls to walk through manure without shoes on.
He also pleaded guilty to behaving in a threatening manner towards a young boy at the same care home.
A charge of abducting the girls was dropped by the Crown.
Sentence was deferred until next month for background reports on both officers - who remain suspended from duty.
