A MAN has yet to indicate a plea to a charge of using threatening words or behaviour on New Year's Day.

Matthew Howell Daly is alleged to have committed the offence in Worcester on January 1, appearing before city magistrates on Monday.

The 21-year-old of Hubert Road, Birmingham, has no reprimands or warnings and the case was adjourned to see if police could deal with the matter by way of an out of court disposal. He is next scheduled to appear at the same court on February 3. He is on unconditional bail until then.
