A ROAD rage accused Greenock motorist has been charged with repeatedly reversing his car towards two men.

Scott McQuillan is said to have caused the pair to take evasive action to avoid being struck by the silver-coloured Mini Cooper he was driving.

McQuillan, 34, earlier got out of his car and tried to kick a vehicle being driven by one of the men in Larkfield, prosecutors say.

He is alleged to have 'pursued' the car whilst shouting and making threats of violence towards its driver.

The Crown says he drove dangerously in the Banff Road/Berwick Road area whilst behaving in a threatening or abusive manner 'likely to cause a reasonable person to suffer fear or alarm, and acting aggressively'.

McQuillan, of Cedar Crescent, is said to have committed the alleged offences on July 2, 2020.

He is further charged with a second claimed threatening or abusive behaviour offence by allegedly targeting a house in Branchton with a metal pole.

McQuillan is accused of repeatedly kicking the front for of the property on Kirkwall Road, shouting, swearing, demanding entry and challenging the occupant to fight him.

He is said to have struck the rear door of the house with the metal pole whilst making threats of violence and acting in an aggressive manner.

Prosecutors say he committed this alleged offence on July 17, 2020.

McQuillan has maintained pleas of not guilty through lawyer Aidan Gallagher at the sheriff court.

The case is due to call again on February 1.
