Default "Liveleaks" in the news



Quote:
FOOTBALLER Ryan Thomson was arrested last night accused of attacking a taxi driver.

The Dunfermline Athletic star walked into a police station after a video showing a man launching himself time and time again at cabbie John Reilly was posted online.

The 21-year-old’s arrest came within hours of the Record publishing shocking images of an incident on Glasgow’s southside.
John, 50, had picked up a group of friends in Cardonald, Glasgow, for a hire to the city centre.

But private hire driver John had to stop his car when two passengers – a male and a female – started fighting in the back seat.

The images of what happened next were posted on Liveleaks – a website normally reserved for scenes of conflict from war.

People from all over the world left comments, many deriding “Weegies”.
The man had repeatedly booted a door panel on the Renault Berlingo cab before John got out to stop him.

But after wrestling John to the floor, the man and two female friends aim punches at the shocked cabbie.

The females then turn peacemakers and try to stop the enraged attacker getting at John. But at one stage, he bursts through and aims a string of punches at John.

John somehow manages to get free and then flees in his cab.

As he drives away, the man again attacks the cab, slamming his fist into the roof.

Despite the incident – which left John shaken and his cab with £400 worth of damage to a door, the roof, a wing and a door frame – the cabbie did not report it to police.

Yesterday, John said: “It is the kind of thing that has happened before and will happen again.

“It was around 9.30pm on Sunday, August 12, and we had an order to pick up a group in Cardonald.

“Everything was fine until a fight started in the back with this guy and a girl – I don’t know if it was his girlfriend – punching lumps out of each other.

“I had no alternative but to stop the cab and ask them to get out.

“At first, they did so with no incident then this guy just started repeatedly booting the door.

“I had to get out to try to stop him and that’s when all hell was let loose.

“As well as him going for me, a couple of the girls did too. They then tried to pull him away.

“But he was furious and blootered. He was crazy.”
After the Record published the images on Tuesday, Strathclyde Police contacted John.

He has since made a full statement.

John said: “This guy’s actions were unacceptable.

“Private hire drivers face these dangers all the time because, unlike taxis, we are not allowed to have partitions in the cab.

“It has left damage of between £300 and £400 on the cab.

“I’ll not be claiming the insurance because it will just inflate my premium. Despite everything, I would not want this guy to lose his career or anything.

“I know that drink is no excuse but I was young once myself and I know how these things can develop.

“I didn’t report it to the police.”
As a youth, Thomson played for Rosshall Academy in Crookston and Harmony Row Boys’ Club. He made his Dunfermline debut in 2008 before being loaned out to Albion Rovers.

He is now a recognised member of the Pars’ top team squad and was a regular in the Scottish Premier League last season.

Yesterday, Thomson was not at his home in Pollok, Glasgow.

A relative said: “He’s not here. He’ll not speak to you.

“I’ve got nothing to say about the footage. What do you think about it?

You’ll go and write what you want to write anyway.”

A Strathclyde Police spokes-woman confirmed two people had been detained and then arrested in connection with the incident.

She said: “A 21-year-old man and woman have been arrested in connection with the alleged assault in Paisley Road West.”

A spokesman for Dunfermline Athletic said: “We are awaiting the full details before any statement can be issued.”

The driver appears to be a stand-up guy. The "footballer", well, no wonder why most Americans think Brits are a bit light-in-the-loafers

Haha.
Put his punk ass in jail.
He obviously does not care for his own career.
If it ruins his career then he has no one to blame but himself.

That was pretty sad. Dude like that, you can pretty much dance out of his way and laugh the whole while. How could he be coordinated enough to play pro ball, but can't even stay on his feet in a fist fight where nobodies hitting him?

He might have been drinking, it's hard to say.

This dude walks runs and fights like such a nancy it's tough to watch. I can't imagine what his mental image of himself looks like in contrast to reality.
