Boozer left pupils in fear

Have your say

A DRUNKEN man terrified primary school pupils with bizarre behaviour, a court has heard.

Gavin Laird’s antics caused kids to burst into tears and alarmed staff and parents, Livingston Sheriff Court was told yesterday.

Laird, 38, repeatedly took off his top and waved his belt aggressively over his head on a path outside St Ninian’s Primary in Livingston. He was asked to stop by teacher Mark Stephenson, but started slapping and punching himself and tightening his belt around his neck.

Laird, of East Calder, was released on bail for a background report.
