An angry driver crashed into a taxi cab after a heated argument with his partner.

Brian Ferguson, 29, hit the parked Uber taxi outside his lover’s address in Glasgow’s Royston area last September.

Ferguson collided with the vehicle at “excessive speed” in front of a crowd of people.

He later blamed a “disagreement with his partner” for his manner of driving.

Ferguson pleaded guilty today at Glasgow Sheriff Court to dangerous driving.

Ferguson was disqualified from driving for 12 months by Sheriff Joseph Platt.

Sheriff Platt said: “Due to the circumstances and the fact  you have no previous driving convictions, you will be disqualified for the minimum period.”

The court heard the Volkswagen Passat taxi parked outside Ferguson’s partner’s address at 10.30pm.

Prosecutor Derek Buchanan said: “The taxi driver noticed Ferguson’s Vauxhall Corsa being reversed erratically on the roadway.

“The driver was aware of other people standing in the street.

“He saw the the vehicle being reversed at excessive speed towards his car and crashing into the front bonnet.”

Ferguson raced down Royston Road and a 999 call was made by the taxi driver.

Ferguson was later traced by police and arrested.

There were no injuries from the incident.

Lawyer, Ian Moir, defending, said: “He had been at the address and was in the process of a disagreement with his partner."
