A TRANENT man who challenged others to fight with him will be sentenced later this year.

Ben Hastie, of Northfield, shouted and swore during the incident at a property near to his home last year.

Hastie acted in an aggressive manner and challenged the group of men to fight with him on September 5.

The 19-year-old had previously admitted the offence and was back in the dock for sentencing last Tuesday.

But Sheriff Adrian Cottam decided to defer sentence again for Hastie to be of good behaviour to June 2.

Hastie admitted behaving in a threatening or abusive manner by shouting, swearing and challenging others to fight with him at Northfield, Tranent, on September 5 last year.
