Gang boss in dog track arson threat.

Byline: By CHARLES LAVERY

CRIME kingpin Grant McIntosh threatened to torch a dog track after being chucked out.

The Paisley gangster waved a broken champagne bottle at stewards after his greyhound came last in a race.

Millionaire McIntosh, known as Mr P because of his grip on his home town, was ejected from Newcastle's Brough Park last Tuesday night.

The 45-year-old, who served time for drugs and violence, screamed at staff: "Do you know who I am? I'll burn this f****** place to the ground."

Stewards called police but ex-con McIntosh was gone when they arrived.

Track owners William Hill confirmed McIntosh had been thrown out.

But a spokesman added: "He is welcome back as long as he behaves."

Police interviewed McIntosh after the bodies of drug dealers John Hall, 45, and David McIntosh, 33, were found in a Lanarkshire scrap-yard in October 2001.
