A MAN who hurled homophobic abuse at Clydebank police after he was stopped on suspicion of driving under the influence has escaped with a fine.

Kosar Mohamed admitted failing to co-operate with a drug test and shouting, swearing and uttering offensive and derogatory remarks towards officers after the incident on Duntocher Road on November 26.

Dumbarton Sheriff Court heard last week that Mohamed, of Tambowie Road, Knightswood, failed to provide a breath specimen after being stopped by police at around 9.30pm, and failed to give a reasonable excuse for not giving a sample.

He was arrested and charged and taken to Clydebank police office, but in the rear yard at the station he became abusive and shouted to one of the two officers “you’re just a little p***” and “suck my d*** you p***”.

Mohamed’s defence solicitor told the court: “His position was he asked for information about the test and he did become upset. He fully accepts he didn’t engage with the procedures and he should have done.

“In relation to the remarks, he felt a personal search was somewhat heavy-handed and he reacted in the way he did.

“He accepts that behaviour was completely unacceptable.

“He has 10 points on his licence and is fully aware he will be disqualified.”

Sheriff John Hamilton fined Mohamed £250 plus a £20 victim surcharge.

Four points were put on his licence, putting him over the threshold for a ban and disqualifying him for six months.
