A 49-year-old man was arrested on June 16 after being caught brandishing two knives in a Falkirk street and acting in a threatening manner.

At Falkirk Sheriff Court last Thursday, John Walker was placed on a supervised community order for two years for his behaviour in Kirk Wynd.

He was warned the sentence was a direct alternative to jail.
