Man tried to video arrest of his pal
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.
