James Patrick Reynolds is accused of possessing a firearm.

A 64-year-old man allegedly returned to a Belfast social club with a gun to scare someone he had just rowed with, a court was told.

James Patrick Reynolds appeared before the city's Magistrates Court accused of possessing a firearm.

Reynolds, of Kinnaird Close in Belfast, was arrested following an incident on Monday.

During a brief hearing he nodded to confirm that he understood the charge against him.

Defence counsel Michael Boyd said his client was not yet in a position to seek bail.

"This case involves him allegedly returning to a social club with a weapon to frighten someone he had an argument with," Mr Boyd told the court.

"His address at the moment is viewed as being too close to that club."

District Judge Fiona Bagnall agreed to a two-week adjournment.

She remanded Reynolds in custody to appear again by video-link on July 3.
