Five males charged in connection with the use of pyrotechnics
Three men, 37, 33 and 18, have been arrested and charged in connection with culpable and reckless conduct, with two other males, aged 16 and 17, also being charged.
This relates to pyrotechnics being set alight within Pittodrie Stadium during the Aberdeen v Rangers fixture and also in the King Street area prior to the match on 18 January.
Four of the accused are from Aberdeen and the fifth is from Glasgow and are aged between 16 and 37. All are subject of reports to the Procurator Fiscal and The Children's Reporter. Football banning orders are also being sought which will restrict access to football matches
Enquiries are continuing to identify further offenders.
Inspector Mike McKenzie, Divisional Alcohol and Violence Reduction Unit, stated, “Pyrotechnics are inherently dangerous and present a risk of serious injury to those who discharge them and those around them. I would ask fans to consider their own safety and wider public safety. We will deal robustly with anyone who chooses to use pyrotechnics illegally."
