Disturbing footage has emerged showing a ‘traveller’ firing his shotgun into the air and threatening to ‘put a hole’ in a rival.
The man is filmed standing in front of a damaged caravan, wielding the firearm and telling an individual named ‘Peewee’ to ‘sleep with one eye open’.
He then points at Peewee and accuses him of ramming into his caravan, before firing the shotgun into the air.
He then threatens to turn his gun on Peewee, as the shotgun cartridge is seen rolling on the road by his feet.
While clutching the gun, the man puts his face right into the camera, and says: ‘You’re in a lot of trouble. I’m taking down every one of your places Peewee.
‘You are one dead man, on my grandmother’s grave.’
The video was uploaded yesterday afternoon, under the caption: ‘Scottish Travellers’.
Police Scotland said they had charged three men in relation to a disturbance on the A199 near Wallyford, East Lothian, which involved the use of a firearm.
However, the force refused to say whether the footage is related to this incident.
Semi-automatic or pump-action shotguns can be legally owned in the UK so long as they cannot be loaded with more than three rounds, including the one in the chamber.
