A SHERIFF court trial is set to go ahead later this year for a Greenock man charged with breaching the conditions of a near-20-year-old anti-social behaviour order.

According to court papers, the ASBO – prohibiting a person from committing any breaches of the peace, assaulting or threatening by words or actions anyone within the Inverclyde area – was imposed on John Glancy in September 2006 at Greenock Sheriff Court.

The 44-year-old is said to have flouted the terms of the directive without reasonable excuse on June 23 last year.

It is claimed that Glancy, of the Inverclyde Centre, conducted himself in a disorderly manner at Cathcart Street in the town centre and engaged in a stand-up fight with an unknown male.

Glancy maintained not guilty pleas through solicitor Derek Buchanan during a calling of the case earlier this week.

A trial is scheduled for October.
