man in court accused of attacking men on dundee golf course with chainsaw and stun gun

 

A man has appeared in court charged over chainsaw and stun gun attacks on a golf course in Dundee. 


 

Joe Brown is accused of trying to kill Arthur Innes in the incident at Caird Park Golf Club in May this year.

Prosecutors said Mr Brown, 45, struck Mr Innes on the head and body with the chainsaw and then "with its engine running".

Mr Brown made no plea during a hearing at the High Court in Glasgow. Lord Matthews continued the case until later this month.

He also faces a charge of attacking Andrew Hay at the golf club on the same day with a stun gun.

Mr Brown faces further allegations including acting in a threatening and abusive manner.
