A MAN has been fined after brandishing a knife.

Michael Duncan admitted behaving in a threatening and abusive manner, causing fear and alarm, repeatedly shouting and swearing on May 12 this year.

He also admitted to brandishing a knife and threatening violence during the same incident in McDowall Avenue in Ardrossan.

The 63-year-old appeared at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court last week and was fined £250.
