Man charged following M90 closure

A man arrested in connection with the closure of one of Scotland's main motorways has appeared in court facing a series of charges.

Kevin McGuigan, 30, was arrested on Saturday night after an incident which closed the M90 Perth to Inverkeithing motorway for about an hour.

He is alleged to have threatened to throw himself into oncoming traffic after climbing a safety barrier.

Mr McGuigan, from Stirling, denied all the charges. He was released on bail.

Further charges heard by the court relate to a breach of the peace on the A91 Stirling to Milnathort flyover on 13 November.

Bail conditions

He was also accused of behaving in an aggressive manner at a house in Milnathort on the same day.

It was alleged that he threatened Sian Conner with violence, causing her fear and alarm.

Finally, he was accused of driving while he was more than twice the alcohol limit and in a stolen car, while he had no insurance or driving licence.

He was granted bail on the special condition that he does not enter Milnathort or approach or contact Ms Conner.
