CCTV filmed a dramatic seven minute long chase through Inverness city centre streets on Boxing Day last year before it ended with a brawl outside a shopping centre.
Fiscal depute Laura Ryan told Inverness Sheriff Court that there had been a disagreement between an unknown man and three others before the pursuit began.
Stewart Fairbairn, (25), 49 Evan Barron Road, 19 year old Brian Emslie, 16 Evan Barron Road, both Inverness and 21 year old Nairn woman Samantha Hill, 11 Moss-side Brae all admitted behaving in a threatening manner and breaking the peace in Falcon Square and elsewhere in Inverness.
She said: “They chased the man around the city centre for seven minutes before it came to an end in Falcon Square when there was a struggle and all of them ended up on the ground.
“It was all filmed on CCTV and police were called to detain the trio.” Ms Ryan said.
Sheriff David Sutherland deferred sentence for their good behaviour for six months until June 9 when they have to return to court.
