Thereafter, the 36-year-old allegedly struck Paul Hamilton on the body with the weapon to his severe injury and to the danger of his life.
Prosecutors allege Drinnan carried out a second attack on Mr Hamilton during the same incident by striking him on the head with the knuckleduster to his permanent disfigurement and to the danger of his life.
Drinnan made no plea or declaration to the allegations when he appeared before Sheriff John Rafferty.
Bail was refused and Drinnan’s case was continued for further examination.
