A MAN who was accused of refusing to unclench his buttocks to cops during a drug search has admitted making violent threats to police and possessing cocaine.

Paul Lamont, 39, pleaded not guilty last year to refusing to comply with the drug search, threatening behaviour and drug possession.

But when he returned to Kilmarnock Sheriff Court last week, Lamont, of Laigh Baidland Farm, Dalry, admitted shouting, swearing and behaving aggressively to officers while threatening violence.

He also pleaded guilty to possessing cocaine during the incident on January 17 last year.

However, a not guilty plea to a further charge, that he repeatedly clenched his buttocks in an alleged attempt to conceal an item while refusing to comply with instructions, was accepted by prosecutors.

Sentence was deferred for criminal justice social work reports and Lamont's bail was continued.

He will return to court at a later date to be sentenced.
