Rutherglen Reformer - - Gossip Girl - Court re­porter

A war­rant has been granted for the ar­rest of a Ruther­glen man who has been ac­cused of driv­ing on the op­po­site side of a car­riage­way, mount­ing the pave­ment and strik­ing a traf­fic sign - all while he was us­ing his mo­bile phone.

David Con­nelly Jnr is al­leged to have been driv­ing on Lan­glea Road in Cam­bus­lang on Novem­ber 25, 2015.

The 35 year-old was charged with us­ing his mo­bile while driv­ing what is be­lieved to be a Kia Carens on the op­pos­ing car­riage­way into the path of two women in ve­hi­cles who had to take eva­sive ac­tion to avoid a col­li­sion.

It is claimed Con­nelly , of Sle­navon Av­enue, mounted the pave­ment and hit a traf­fic sign while driv­ing the ve­hi­cle with­out in­sur­ance and with­out the con­sent of the owner or other law­ful au­thor­ity.

The ac­cused was due to ap­pear at Glas­gow Sher­iff Court on May 22.

How­ever, a war­rant has now been granted for his ar­rest.
