Lau­rence McConville, of 6 Drum­re­och Drive, To­ry­glen, ap­peared at Glas­gow Sher­iff Court on Tues­day, April 5, with his co-ac­cused Steven Kerr, of 83 Old Dal­marnock Road, Bridgeton.

At the hear­ing McConville de­nied as­sault­ing a po­lice con­sta­ble by re­peat­edly seiz­ing hold of him, push­ing him, throw­ing him to the footwell of a mo­tor ve­hi­cle and re­peat­edly at­tempt­ing to strike him on the body.

The 18 year old, to­gether with Kerr, 24, is also charged with com­mit­ting a breach of the peace by shout­ing and swear­ing on Ruther­glen Main Street, on Au­gust 2, 2015, and of ob­struct­ing and strug­gling vi­o­lently with two po­lice of­fi­cers.

Both men deny all charges against them and will re­turn to court on Septem­ber 20, 2016.
