Trial ad­journed in case of false cop car driven at speed

Rutherglen Reformer - - Court -

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.
