Man denies streaking at Glasgow Games rugby sevens match

A man is to stand trial for allegedly streaking on the pitch at a rugby match during the Commonwealth Games.

James Hendry is accused of breaching the peace by running onto the field at Ibrox stadium during half time while only wearing underwear.

The 20-year-old, from Clarkston, East Renfrewshire, is alleged to have run around the field on 26 July.

He pleaded not guilty during an appearance at Glasgow Sheriff Court and trial was set for March next year.

Unpaid work

In another case, William Aitken, 21, from Girvan, South Ayrshire, was handed a community payback order and told to carry out 50 hours of unpaid work after he admitted running on to the pitch during the same match.

Procurator fiscal depute Clare Macaulay told the court he ran on during the second half of the game between Samoa and Wales.

Two other men are also due to stand trial for running on to the field during the rugby match, on the same date.

Rhys Jack, 20, from Edinburgh and Murray Kemp, 19, from Kelvinside, Glasgow denied the charge when they appeared in court.
