COURT IN THE ACT; Suspect 'attacked cop in corridor': EXCLUSIVE.
SECURITY has been stepped up at a court complex after claims that a police officer was seriously hurt in an unprovoked attack.
The alleged incident happened in a corridor outside Court 8 at Glasgow SheriffCourt last week.
Barry Millen, 34, was arrested and appeared in court that day on charges of police assault, resisting arrest and breach of the peace. He was remanded in custody and will appear again this week to face further charges.
The alleged incident happened on Tuesday morning during an adjournment of a hearing at the first-floor court where Millen was giving evidence. The extent of the officer's injuries is not known.
Millen, of Glasgow, is also alleged to have threatened a lawyer and another police officer during the incident at Scotland's biggest criminal court. It's understood they had all been in Court 8. Yesterday, the Scottish Court Service confirmed there had been an incident at the complex.
A spokesman said: "Police were in the building and it is understood the man was arrested. The Scottish Court Service requires all such incidents to be reported, which includes a review of security arrangements."
Strathclyde Police say they are also reviewing court security in light of the incident.
