A WALLYFORD man brandished a screwdriver during an incident in Prestonpans earlier this year.

Craig Sheridan pulled out the makeshift weapon at the town’s Longdykes Road in May.

Sheridan, of Affleck Rise, also destroyed property belonging to another when he removed a wooden panel on a garden shed at a property at nearby Middleshot Square.

Sheridan, 29, admitted his guilt to both offences during an appearance at Edinburgh Sheriff Court last Tuesday.

Sheriff Adrian Cottam deferred sentence till next month for the preparation of background reports.

Sheridan admitted wilfully damaging property belonging to another at an address at Middleshot Square, Prestonpans, on May 27.

He also pleaded guilty to behaving in a threatening or abusive manner by shouting, swearing, acting aggressively and brandishing a screwdriver at an address at Longdykes Road, Prestonpans, on the same date.
