POLICE were on the receiving end of abuse at a Glasgow bar after they woke up a reveller who had fallen asleep on the floor.

Kenneth Maclennan was sentenced at Glasgow Sheriff Court after officers were asked to attend the Argosy Bar in Paisley Road West.

The officers found the 35-year-old of Linnhead Drive, Priesthill, asleep on the floor of the premises. Police explained to him they were there to check if he was OK but he told them to “f*** off”.

Maclennan was then told he was under arrest after acting aggressively and started struggling with the officers. He was handcuffed and taken to Helen Street Police Office. Maclennan admitted that on November 2015 at the Argosy Bar on Paisley Road West he behaved in a threatening and abusive manner by shouting, swearing, acting in an aggressive manner, uttering threats of violence and struggle with police officers. Maclennan was involved in another incident at he Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.

He further admitted that on January 30, last year, in A&E he behaved in a threatening and abusive manner by shouting, swearing and uttering offensive remarks.

The court heard that on both occasions Maclennan was heavily intoxicated and that he had a problem with alcohol. His defending solicitor he was making positive steps to deal with this problem. He was placed under supervision for a year.
