A Glaswegian who tried to feed a sausage roll to police horses he thought looked hungry faces a court trial.
Police allege that Francis Kelly, 41, behaved in a "threatening or abusive manner" as he attempted to give his pork pastry snack to the horses.
In what may be a first for the Scottish legal system, Kelly will stand trial in February.
He denies all charges against him and an insider commented: "His view is simply that he thought the horses looked hungry, daft as that sounds."
