OAP hit cop on the head

Paisley Daily Express - - Front Page -

A pen­sioner lashed out and in­jured a po­lice of­fi­cer dur­ing an in­ci­dent in John­stone.

James Tay­lor, 68, re­peat­edly at­tempted to hit PC Frazer Cam­bridge on the head in a po­lice ve­hi­cle in the town’s Mac­dowall Street, then struck him on the head with a key or sim­i­lar ob­ject.

When Tay­lor, of Fer­gu­son Street, John­stone, ap­peared in the dock at Pais­ley Sher­iff Court, he pleaded guilty to the of­fence.

Sher­iff Max Hendry said he viewed the of­fences as a se­ri­ous mat­ter and would first re­quire back­ground re­ports be­fore con­sid­er­ing an sen­tence.

He de­ferred sen­tence un­til March 15 for a so­cial work crim­i­nal jus­tice re­port to be pre­pared, as well as a Re­stric­tion of Lib­erty assess­ment.
