Two people appeared in the New Plymouth District Court today on separate charges linked to clamper Daniel Clout.

A 65-year-old woman appeared on a charge of assault after she allegedly spat in the face of Mr Clout when her car was clamped in the Richmond Centre about 1.30pm yesterday.

She was remanded until January 16 to give her time to seek diversion.

Scott Douglas McCartney appeared before Judge Tony Adeane today charged with threatening to injure Mr Clout.

McCartney, who represented himself in court, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

"I didn't say the things he said I said," McCartney told the judge.

McCartney admitted talking to Mr Clout while he sat in his car, but denied threatening him.

Judge Adeane scheduled a defended hearing for McCartney on February 11.
