Man in court accused of attacking two men on Dundee golf course with chainsaw and stun gun

Man in court accused of attacking two men on Dundee golf course with chainsaw and stun gun

A man accused of attacking two men on a Dundee golf course with a chainsaw and stun gun has had his case continued without plea.

Joe Henry Brown, 45, a prisoner at Perth, made no plea or declaration during a short preliminary hearing today at the High Court in Glasgow in front of Lord Matthews.

He faces 10 charges, including allegations of attempted murder, possessing a firearm and being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.

It is alleged that on May 2 at Caird Park Golf Club in Dundee, he assaulted Arthur Innes by repeatedly striking him on the head and body with a chainsaw, then with its engine running, all to his severe injury, permanent disfigurement and to the danger of his life, and attempted to murder him.

He faces a second charge that on the same date at the same location, he assaulted Andrew Hay by repeatedly striking him on the body with an activated stun gun, seizing him by the head and pushing him on the ground.

He is also accused of possessing a firearm, namely a stun gun, which was disguised as a mobile phone.

He is further alleged to have behaved in a threatening or abusive manner by repeatedly shouting, swearing, brandishing a chainsaw, running into a road while partially clothed and causing a driver to take evasive action.

It is also alleged that between January 25 and May 2 this year, at various locations in Dundee, Brown produced cannabis, a Class B drug.

He is also accused, between the same dates and at the same locations, of three charges of being concerned in the supply of cannabis and cocaine and ecstasy, both Class A drugs.

And he faces two further charges that on May 2, at an address in Graham Court, he was in possession of diazepam and Tramadol, both Class C drugs.

All the offences are alleged to have taken place while he was on bail.

The case was continued for a further preliminary hearing at the High Court in Glasgow on Thursday and Brown was remanded in custody in the meantime.
