PRESTONPANS man Robert Kubsik has been fined after he was found guilty of behaving aggressively at a hotel in South Queensferry.

Kubsik, of Drummohr Drive, was at the the town’s Premier Inn when he began acting in an aggressive manner and started throwing objects. Police were called to deal with him but the 39-year-old continued his unruly behaviour while on route to Livingston police station.

Kubsik shouted and swore before going on to repeatedly utter threats of violence and make offensive remarks towards the officers.

Kubsik denied the offence but he was found guilty following a summary trial in front of Sheriff Frank Crowe at Edinburgh Sheriff Court last Monday.

The Prestonpans man was found not guilty of a further charge of making offensive remarks to police and to assaulting officers while in the van on the way to the police station.

Sheriff Crowe marked the offence by ordering Kubsik to pay a fine of £300.

Kubsik was found guilty of behaving aggressively by shouting, swearing, acting aggressively, throwing objects, repeatedly uttering threats of violence and offensive remarks to police officers at the Premier Inn Hotel, South Queensferry, and while on route to Livingston police station on April 13 this year.
