A dispute between neighbours boiled over when there was a confrontation in their Dulnain Bridge street.

Inverness Sheriff Court was told earlier today by fiscal depute Naomi Duffy-Welsh that 55 year old David Woodcock was "staggering" along School Place on October 24, 2021 and started shouting at a man who had just driven in.

Fiscal depute Naomi Duffy-Welsh said Woodcock opened the vehicle's door and pulled the driver out.

"Both men struggled with each other on the road, causing a graze to the driver's leg. Then Woodcock staggered to his house, saying 'Don't mess with me'. Police were called," the prosecutor said.

Defence solicitor John MacColl said: "Both are complaining that the other is making two much noise. My client had one or two drinks."

Woodcock admitted assault to injury and was fined £320.
