Bartkus v Procurator Fiscal, Glasgow

Criminal law – Breach of the peace. High Court of Justiciary: Refusing an appeal by stated case by an appellant who was convicted of breaching the peace by his conduct towards members of staff of a store selling lingerie and women's underwear, the court held that the sheriff had not erred in law in convicting the appellant of a breach of the peace as his conduct was of sufficient gravity to be genuinely alarming and disturbing to a reasonable person.
