Paisley Daily Express - - Yob Battered On His Pal’s Doorstep In Front Of Cop - David Camp­bell

A rag­ing driver re­versed her mo­tor off the back of a debt col­lec­tor’s tow truck when he went to seize it.

Sher­iff of­fi­cers went to uplift the car from Pais­ley’s Gal­lowhill Road when the fum­ing owner turned up and de­cided it was go­ing nowhere.

In­stead of let­ting the worker get on with the job, she hopped be­hind the wheel of the car as it was loaded onto the truck and re­versed back on to the road.

It’s un­der­stood the crazed driver ca­reered into a parked car and clipped the 50 year-old debt col­lec­tor’s leg as she tried to res­cue her car dur­ing the in­ci­dent, which hap­pened around 11.50am on Thurs­day.

When cops ar­rived on the scene, the stub­born driver re­fused to budge, stay­ing in the driv­ing seat be­fore she was even­tu­ally per­suaded to give up.

The car was fi­nally seized and taken away as the stand-off ended.

It is un­der­stood that no-one was in­jured dur­ing the in­ci­dent.

A Po­lice Scot­land spokes­woman ex­plained how cops raced to the aid of the debt col­lec­tors in the Gal­lowhill area on Thurs­day morn­ing.

She said: “Po­lice were called to an in­ci­dent in Gal­lowhill Road in Pais­ley at around 11.50am on Thurs­day.

“A Sher­iff of­fi­cer had gone to seize a ve­hi­cle un­der a war­rant when the fe­male owner turned up and took um­brage as the car was loaded.

“As the car was loaded on to the tow truck she got be­hind the wheel and re­versed it off. As she did so, she struck a parked car and clipped the leg of the Sher­iff of­fi­cer.

“She re­mained in her ve­hi­cle and re­fused to move for a pe­riod of time be­fore be­ing re­moved by po­lice of­fi­cers.”

Po­lice Scot­land said a 34- year- old woman has been ar­rested in con­nec­tion with a dan­ger­ous driv­ing of­fence.
