Hin­dered po­lice

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Two men are claimed to have en­gaged in a stand up fight in a street in Ruther­glen.

Ge­orge, 31, and Wil­liam Ste­wart, 27, were ac­cused of be­hav­ing in a threat­en­ing and abu­sive man­ner on King Street on April 23, 2015.

G Ste­wart pled guilty to the charge and ad­mit­ted to have ob­structed or hin­dered two po­lice of­fi­cers in the ex­e­cu­tion of their duty by strug­gling with them and flail­ing his arms about in an at­tempt not to be hand­cuffed.

Wil­liam Ste­wart, who is be­lieved to have been on bail at the time of the in­ci­dent, also pled guilty to ob­struct­ing the of­fi­cers but de­nied en­gag­ing in the fight.

His trial was ad­journed un­til May 3 while his coac­cused was fined £300.
