Chainsaw-wielding OAP, 76, guilty of six charges

A 76-YEAR-OLD retired police officer ‘set himself up as the policeman of Ballachulish’, Sheriff William Taylor QC said on Monday at Fort William Sheriff Court.

He then intimidated people, the sheriff added.

He found Thomas Allan Kirsop, of Brudair, North Ballachulish, guilty of six charges, including swinging a chainsaw with its engine running while staring at neighbours, uttering threats and shouting offensive remarks; staring at the head teacher of the village primary school in an intimidating manner; engaging in conduct which caused a husband and wife fear and alarm by following the wife’s car, pulling alongside; banging into her at the village primary school; sending an anonymous letter containing a newspaper clipping and placing signs with an offensive slogan on a boundary fence.
