Trial adjourned in case of false cop car driven at speed
The trial against a man who lied about a motorist driving a ‘pretend ’police vehicle has had his trial adjourned.
Ryan Mack called the police on three occasions last year to report a black car being driven at speed with a blue flashing light attached to it.
The first incident occurred on November 18, when he reportedly said the car was driving on East Kilbride Road; the second on November 19 when he said the car was on Carrick Road; and the third on November 20 when he said it was on Western Road.
Mack, of Carrick Road, Rutherglen, faces three charges and is accused of temporarily depriving the public of police service as officers were investigating the false crime.
Trial against 22-year-old Mack has been postponed until the New Year at Glasgow Sheriff Court.
