Woman fined after QoS disturbance

Section:  Dumfries and West  | Tags: , ,

A WOMAN who found herself barred from a semi-final cup tie between Queen of the South and Dundee United at Palmerston because she was drunk started waving her ticket and arguing with security officers.

And a court this week heard that when Vikki Ogilvie started shouting, swearing and referring to the staff and then the police in derogatory terms she was arrested and refused to give her name stating it was “Donald Duck”.
In the dock on Tuesday, Ogilvie, 34, of Annandale Avenue, Dundee, admitted attempting to enter a sports ground while drunk, behaving in a threatening or abusive manner and refusing to give her details to police.
She told the court she had been following Dundee United – who won the match 3-2 – for 20 years.
She was fined £200.
At the same court a case in which a teenager was accused of letting off a flare at an earlier round match at Palmerston, in which the Dumfries side beat Linfield 2-0, was continued without plea for a week.
Lewis Guthrie, 19, from Johnstone, is alleged to have culpably and recklessly discharged the flare or smoke device amongst the crowd to the danger and risk of injury to others.
