Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

A Ruther­glen man who al­legedly as­saulted a po­lice of­fi­cer and his ac­com­plice, who at­tempted to video his ar­rest, will stand trial next month.

David McMil­lan, from McCal­lum Av­enue, and Joseph McCart­ney, of Hick­man Street, Glas­gow, were de­tained af­ter a dis­tur­bance on To­ry­glen Road, Ruther­glen on Jan­uary 23, 2015.

McMil­lan is ac­cused of be­hav­ing in a threat­en­ing and abu­sive man­ner, of swear­ing and ut­ter­ing threats of vi­o­lence, be­fore re­sist­ing po­lice by lung­ing for­ward and kick­ing out with his legs. The 22-year- old is said to have spat on an of­fi­cer.

McCart­ney, 26, is also ac­cused of ob­struct­ing po­lice of­fi­cers in the line of duty by stand­ing in front of of­fi­cers who were at­tempt­ing to place McMil­lan in a po­lice ve­hi­cle.

He al­legedly took his phone out, thrust it in the faces of of­fi­cers and at­tempted to get into the po­lice ve­hi­cle to record video footage of the ar­rested per­son.

Both men pleaded not guilty to the charges against them when they ap­peared at Glas­gow Sher­iff Court on June 7.

They will re­turn to stand trial on July 12.
