Inverness footballer accused of breach of the peace

A Scottish Premiership player has been charged with a breach of the peace aggravated by sexual orientation prejudice.

Inverness Caledonian Thistle defender Josh Meekings did not appear in person for the hearing at Inverness Sheriff Court.

His solicitor Rory Gowans asked that the case be continued without plea for instructions from his client.

Mr Gowans sought a four week deferral which Sheriff David Sutherland granted.

The case will call again next month.

Mr Meekings was charged by police after the alleged offence in Inverness city centre on 20 December last year.
