A 47-year-old man has appeared before Perth Sheriff court accused of causing fear and alarm by being aggressive with a black pudding.
Bradley Davidson is alleged to have behaved in a threatening and abusive manner before hurling the blood sausage across a room.
He also faces a charge of assaulting a 10-year-old girl on the same date by kicking her on the leg.
Mr Davidson denied the charge and the case will be heard next month.
He is alleged to have behaved "in a threatening or abusive manner which was likely to cause a reasonable person to suffer fear and alarm in that you did act in an aggressive manner, shout and throw a black pudding across the room".
The incident is alleged to have taken place in Mr Davidson's flat in Perth, on 13 May this year.
A third charge alleges that he damaged property by kicking a door and causing a glass panel to smash.
Procurator fiscal depute Stuart Richardson told the court that the Crown were prepared for trial and the case was continued until 16 October.
