Fan charged after coins thrown at footballer during game
The 25-year-old will appear in court over incident at Falkirk v Dunfermline in October.
A football fan has been charged after coins were thrown at a player during a Championship match.
The Dunfermline player was targeted as his side took on Falkirk on October 6.
The coins missed and no-one was injured during the incident at the Falkirk Stadium.
A 25-year-old man has now been charged and is expected to appear at Falkirk Sheriff Court at a later date.
Detective Sergeant Kenny Halliday, Forth Valley's dedicated football officer, said: "Throwing items on the pitch or at people is a reckless and disruptive act.
"We remain committed to pursuing those who attempt to cause others harm and ruin the game for the majority of responsible fans."
Coin throwing has been been a hot topic in Scottish football this season.
Hibs manager Neil Lennon was struck during last Wednesday's Edinburgh derby, while Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos was hit with a coin at St Mirren's ground on Saturday.
Earlier this season, an assistant referee was struck as Livingston took on Rangers.
