A MAN has appeared in court for allegedly trying to feed sausage rolls to police horses.

Francis Kelly, 41, is accused of giving the pastries to the animals that led to him being arrested.

Prosecutors allege he behaved in a "threatening or abusive manner" by attempting to feed the horses. He will now stand trial next year.

The incident is said to have taken place in Pollokshaws Road, Glasgow, on September 26 this year.

The charge also claims Kelly "adopted an aggressive stance" towards the officers in charge of the horses when told to put the sausage rolls away.

Kelly, of Govanhill, denies the charge. He will return to Glasgow's Justice of the Peace court next February for trial.
