A man is to face trial accused of yawning and swearing during a court appearance.
Thomas Tams faces a single charge alleging he conducted himself in a disorderly manner and commited a breach of the peace by "yawning loudly whilst the court was sitting".
The incident is said to have happened at Alloa Sheriff Court on February 20.
At Stirling Sheriff Court Tams, 35, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
As well as yawning, Tams, of Alva, Clackmannanshire, refused to comply with an instruction from the clerk of court, and swore and shouted.
After hearing that both defence and prosecution were ready, Sheriff Wyllie Robertson continued the case for trial on June 6, and ordered Tams to re-appear then.
