A POLICE officer has gone on trial accused of punching her fiancée in the face.

Lara Mcaulay, 30, allegedly attacked 33 year-old Gordon Dunn - also an officer - at a property in Rutherglen, near Glasgow on January 30 2021.

Mcaulay and Mr Dunn had been in a relationship since the summer of 2018 and later got engaged.

Glasgow Sheriff Court heard the couple has been at their home with Macaulay’s mum.

Prosecutor Lauren Donnelly asked Mr Dunn: “What happened once you were in the house?”

“I went into the living room, I played my music and Lara asked me to turn it down.

“I did and then I went into the hall and saw her mother sitting on the stairs.”

Miss Donnelly: “…and then what?”

Mr Dunn: “Her mother was sitting on the stair and Lara was next me.

“I asked what was the wrong, I said I was going to bed and that’s when Lara punched me in the face.”

The fiscal: “How many times did she punch you?”

He alleged: “Twice.”

Ian Anderson, defending, later put to Mr. Gunn had he been drinking that day.

He replied: “We shared a bottle of wine.”

Mr Anderson asked: “So you didn’t have a cocktail as well?”

The witness: “I can’t recall.”

Video footage showed Gunn signing and dancing loudly to Celtic songs in his living room.

The trial continues before Sheriff Allan Findlay.
