Prosecutor Kyle Dalziel told Glasgow Sheriff Court: “He then went to sit at the front of the bus and called the driver a ‘c**t’ several times.

"He then moved to the back shouting ‘you’re a dead man walking’.”

“He continued to shout at passengers and then returned to the front where he kicked the driver’s window and reached through to grab the steering wheel.
