A MAN was cleared today of assaulting a man in a taxi queue.

Brian McGuigan, 39, was alleged to have attacked Conor Delaney, 26, in Glasgow's Merchant City on March 15, 2020.

Mr Delaney claimed he was punched to the head after making a joke about McGuigan skipping the queue.

He stated he lost his memory after falling to the ground and when he came round, he had lost feeling to the right side of his body.

Evidence was agreed at Glasgow Sheriff Court that Mr Delaney suffered a fractured leg and a dislocated shoulder.

McGuigan denied the charge of assaulting Mr Delaney to his severe injury and impairment.

A jury found the charge not proven and McGuigan, of the city's Garthamlock, was acquitted of the charge.
