He was charged with breach of the peace, vandalism, police assault and possession of a class B drug and was kept in custody until sober. A report has been submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.
A 17-year-old man was stopped while driving on South Beach Street at 10.35pm on Friday and was issued with a fixed penalty for driving while the windscreen of his vehicle was obscured.
