A Dundee man has been accused of throwing lit fireworks in the direction of a pregnant woman and an 11-month-old baby.
Dennis Cox is facing three charges of throwing fireworks in a public place on three separate occasions.
The 31-year-old is further accused of lashing out at several police officers and refusing to be handcuffed.
His case was continued without plea until December 22 at Dundee Sheriff Court.
The charges state that on May 28, 2016, at Balmerino Road, Cox did culpably and recklessly throw lit fireworks in a public place with utter disregard for, and to the danger of, those nearby.
Cox, of Douglas Road, is alleged to have committed an identical offence in the same location on June 23, 2016.
A few days later, on June 29 of the same year, he was said to have culpably and recklessly thrown lit fireworks in the direction of a woman, who was pregnant at the time.
Cox was accused of doing so with utter disregard for her safety, the safety of her unborn child and for the safety of an 11-month-old child who was with her.
The offence was alleged to have been committed at Balmerino Road.
A fourth charge states that on July 2 at his home address on Douglas Road, Cox resisted, obstructed or hindered police constables Reuben Morgan, Rebecca Bann and Stephen Bayley in the execution of their duty.
He was said to have repeatedly lashed out with his arm, struggled and refused to be handcuffed.
All of the alleged offences were said to have been committed while Cox was on bail, granted on December 31, 2015, and March 11, 2016, at Dundee Sheriff Court.
