War­rant granted

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Court re­porter

An ar­rest war­rant has been granted for a Ruther­glen man charged with dan­ger­ous driv­ing.

John MacLeod, of King­sheath Av­enue, is ac­cused of com­mit­ting the of­fence on var­i­ous roads across Glas­gow on May 13 last year.

He is said to have driven at ex­ces­sive speed, driven on the op­pos­ing car­riage­way and re­peat­edly failed to slow down, caus­ing pedes­tri­ans to take eva­sive ac­tion to avoid be­ing struck by his car.

He is fur­ther al­leged to have failed to stay in a sta­tion­ary po­si­tion when in­structed by a po­lice of­fi­cer who was stand­ing in the mid­dle of the road.

MacLeod, 29, pleaded not guilty to the charge when he ap­peared at Glas­gow Sher­iff Court on May 16.

He was due to ap­pear in court on June 16 but a war­rant has now been granted.
