An Aberdeen man is to stand trial later this month accused of smearing a threatening remark in excrement on the wall of a police cell.
Jonathan Murray, 51, is facing a string of charges over allegations on October 6.
It is alleged he behaved in a threatening or abusive manner at Kittybrewster Police Office by shouting, swearing, acting in an aggressive manner, making threats to kill, urinating on a cell door and then smearing a threat in excrement on a cell wall.
He also faced a further threatening and abusive behaviour charge, two assault charges and one of assaulting a police officer.

The case was continued to trial later this month.
