A man has denied recklessly discharging a shotgun in the north-east.
Graeme Thompson pled not guilty to the charge.
The 52-year-old did not appear in person but pled not guilty through a letter from his solicitor.
Thompson, whose address was given as Fetternear, Inverurie, is charged with discharging the shotgun across a public roadway and over the Kemnay Livery on January 30.
The case will next call in November for a pre-trial hearing.
