Scottish man arrested for carrying potato peeler in public ‘without reasonable excuse’

[Ed. – Guy’s lawyer says he’s learning-disabled.  So many questions.  How did they know he had a potato peeler?  What’s a “reasonable excuse” for carrying one?]

A man was arrested in Dunfermline, Scotland, on Saturday for carrying a potato peeler in a public place “without reasonable excuse” and faces up to four years in prison.

The Dunfermline Sheriff Court confirmed to Breitbart London that Scott Walker, 39, of the James Bank Hostel, James Street had appeared Monday, charged under the Criminal Law (Consolidation) (Scotland) Act 1995, for carrying “an article which had a blade or which was sharply pointed, namely a potato peeler”.

Sheriff Pino di Emidio ordered that Walker should return to the court on May 16th for sentencing over the crime, for which he could receive up to four years’ imprisonment.
