Menacing threat of machete-wielding traveller

A gypsy traveller who challenged the family of TV star Paddy Doherty to a fight by brandishing machetes in a YouTube video has been jailed for 29 months.

Raymond McIntyre, 33, donned a balaclava and held up blades as he threatened members of the Big Fat Gypsy star's clan.

McIntyre was at the centre of a feud between gypsy families and was seen shouting in the footage: 'I'm coming for you.'

The video was filmed in Douglas, Lanarkshire, at the 'king of the road' horse and cart race meeting in May and has been viewed more than 24,000 times.

McIntyre appeared at Lanark Sheriff Court and admitted behaving in a threatening or abusive manner, shouting and swearing, and brandishing machetes.

He also admitted possessing the machetes and was jailed for 29 months by Sheriff Derek O'Carroll.

The 16-minute video features five men looking into the camera challenging rivals to a fight before bare-chested McIntyre appears wearing a balaclava with four weapons tucked into his shorts.

At one point he turns round to show scars on his back and lifts the balaclava to show the left side of his face.
