A MAN who tried to escape police reportedly fell over as he went to run off.

Cops said they attempted to stop the 20-year-old, who they believed was acting suspiciously, around 10.10pm on October 19 in Dumbarton Road, Old Kilpatrick.

The man allegedly threw items from his pocket before falling over.

He was then arrested and charged with possession with intent to supply cocaine and MDA. The man is due to appear in Dumbarton Sheriff Court at a later date.
