A COUNTY man has been fined after he acted aggressively and threatened to destroy property at a hotel in Gullane.

Jamie Bouwer, 27, acted aggressively towards a woman by shouting and swearing during the incident at the village’s Greywalls Hotel on Duncur Road.

Bouwer, of Ashgrove, Musselburgh, also shouted threats to damage property within the hotel on April 2 last year.

He admitted the charge when he appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court last Tuesday. Sheriff Thomas Welsh issued him with a fine of £270 to mark the offence.
