A CABBIE accused of behaving like' a stunt driver” claims his Irn Bru drink was spiked with ecstasy, a court heard.

Passenger Tracey Paleford, 48, told Glasgow Sheriff Court, that she feared for her life because of the way taxi driver Ross McNair, 42, from Condorrat, was driving.

McNair denies the charge of dangerous driving and being unfit to drive through drink or drugs.

Epilepsy sufferer Miss Paleford, believes the incident caused her to have a seizure when she got to the gym.

Another witness, Scott Henderson, 36, called the police after seeing McNair driving on the wrong side of the road close to the Glasgow Fort.

PC Mark Tweddle who dealt with Mr McNair by the roadside claimed McNair said he “took too much medication” and added: "There was no sign of any can, as it would have been confiscated."

The court heard that a few days later, an attempt was made to hand in a can of Irn Bru at London Road police station.

McNair's lawyer says McNair believes that his can of Irn Bru was spiked and the trial has been adjourned to allow the can to be forensically analysed.

The trial continues.
