A HADDINGTON man who injured a man after waving two knives around has been placed on a supervision order.

David Brown culpably swung the two blades near to other people during an incident at an address at the town’s Brown Street earlier this year.

During the incident in June, Brown struck victim Rory Shearer on the body to the man’s severe injury.

Brown, c/o HMP Edinburgh, was also caught in possession of a pair of nunchucks in Haddington in November last year.

The 47-year-old appeared from custody at Edinburgh Sheriff Court last Tuesday, where he admitted the two offences.

Sheriff Donald Corke released Brown from custody and placed him on two years of supervision to monitor his behaviour.

Brown admitted possessing nunchucks at Nungate Bridge, Ross’s Close and High Street, all Haddington, on November 19 last year.

He also pleaded guilty to culpably and recklessly waving two knives in the vicinity of others and striking Rory Shearer on the body to his severe injury at Brown Street, Haddington, on June 22 this year.
