The 20-year-old, of Hawksworth Road, Burghfield Common, is accused of having a large, imitation firearm in public.

Next he is charged with using it to cause Nicholas Lewis to fear it would be used against him.

Finally Mr Collins is accused of assaulting Mr Lewis by beating him.

All the offences were said to have happened in Reading town centre on October 29 last year.

Mr Collins, who was legally represented by Fayyaz Alam, was told the case would be dealt with by a judge and, in the event of a trial, by a jury sitting at Reading Crown Court on a date to be fixed.

He was meanwhile released on bail with conditions.
