Protesters arrested following disturbances on the first day of the G8 summit appeared in court today.
Around 70 custody cases are expected to be called at Perth Sheriff Court today, following incidents between protesters and police officers in Auchterarder and a number of roads in the Gleneagles area.
Another 40 were appearing at Stirling Sheriff Court in connection with incidents around the city yesterday morning.
This morning, Matthew Gannicliffe, 31, of Stockport, Greater Manchester, denied causing a breach of the peace yesterday on the southbound A9 by running at police officers and going on to the dual carriageway in an attempt to block traffic.
He also denied a further charge alleging he assaulted a North Yorkshire police inspector by striking him with his shoulder, knocking him to the ground.
Gannicliffe pleaded guilty to both charges and a trial date was set for September.
He was released on bail on the special conditions that he does not enter the Perth and Kinross area, the area of Stirling, and the city of Edinburgh unless travelling home.
These conditions were put in place until July 11, 2005.
Heightened security was visible at the court today with a number of uniformed police officers stationed outside and bag searches being conducted before people entered the building.
