Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

The case against a Ruther­glen man charged with re­peat­edly kick­ing a po­lice con­sta­ble on the body has been de­layed un­til Au­gust.

Edward McEwan was due to stand trial for as­sault­ing a po­lice of­fi­cer on April 18.

The 44-year-old, of Tober­mory Road, is also claimed to have shouted, swore, ut­tered threats and strug­gled vi­o­lently with of­fi­cers by lash­ing out with his legs at his home ad­dress.

But at the hear­ing at Glas­gow Sher­iff Court on April 18, McEwan was told to re­turn for an in­ter­me­di­ate trial diet on Au­gust 9, with a trial date set for Septem­ber 5.

He de­nies all charges against him.
