A MAN got a hammer out of his boot after getting annoyed at a woman’s driving.

Garry Grant, 51, followed the woman into Asda Robroyston’s car park during the incident on December 8, 2020.

He appeared in Glasgow Sheriff Court for sentencing.

The prosecutor said: “Two witnesses were within a car travelling from their home to Asda. The woman who was driving positioned her vehicle in the inside lane of the M80 to take the Bishopbriggs cut-off.

“She became aware of the accused’s vehicle travelling towards her rear. She observed the accused overtake her vehicle and harshly slow down in front of her.

“She continued her journey to Asda. The accused followed her into Asda's car park. The witnesses got out of the car as did the accused.”

Grant questioned the woman’s manner of driving before becoming threatening and abusive.

He then opened the boot of his car and brandished a hammer, before stating he was going to “f*****g end you”.

He put the hammer back in his vehicle and left.

Police were contacted and officers attended and were able to view CCTV of the incident.

They attended at Grant’s home in Kilsyth where he was cautioned and charged. He replied: "She made a hand gesture to me first."

Grant’s lawyer said his client accepted that his reaction to the gesture was “completely out of proportion”.

He added: “The passenger comes out of the car along with the driver. He retrieved the hammer out of his boot for a matter of seconds. The whole incident is over in a matter of seconds.

“He is in full-time employment and is in a relationship. He has no other matters pending. He can do unpaid work and some form of anger management could be put in place to assist him with unresolved issues he has.”

Sheriff Jonathan Guy placed Grant under social work supervision for one year and ordered him to carry out 90 hours of unpaid work.

He was also ordered to pay £100 compensation to each victim.

The sentence was imposed as a direct alternative to custody.

Sheriff Guy said: “You pleaded guilty to a serious offence which must have been extremely unpleasant.”
