The Same Jeans rocker is accused of shouting, swearing and threatening passengers while armed with two bottles and hurling homophobic abuse at a male air steward during a flight from Spain to Glasgow, Scotland in June, 2016. He was escorted off the plane by French police after the aircraft made an emergency landing in Nantes, France and he was arrested upon his return to Glasgow.

The case was adjourned in September (16) so it could be determined which country the alleged offence occurred in, and in February (17) his legal team tried to have the case thrown out by claiming Paisley Sheriff Court in Falconer's native Scotland did not have jurisdiction over incidents in the air.

However, on Wednesday (15Mar17), Sheriff David Pender rejected the move as well as Falconer's lawyer Eamonn MCGeehan's request to appeal against the decision.

The 29-year-old is due to stand trial in May on two charges of behaving in a threatening or abusive manner, according to Scotland's Daily Record newspaper.

Shortly after the incident last year, the musician checked into a rehabilitation facility in Thailand to beat his demons.
