An off-duty Police Officer has been fined for taking part in the carnage that was inflicted on Glasgow city centre last Saturday.

While his colleagues were being overwhelmed by 15,000 Covidiots Ross Fowler opted to join in the chaos with CCTV coverage picking him out in George Square.

It was reported that five Police Officers suffered serious injury, while they were trying to protect public safety one of their own was on the other side bringing chaos to the city with businesses forced to close and A & E wards almost overwhelmed. One fan turned up with half of his hand missing.

Having mixed in close proximity with thousands of fans it can be assumed that PC Fowler is now self-isolating.

The Daily Record reports:

A serving police officer has been fined after he was caught partying with Rangers fans at the lockdown-breaching George Square mass gathering.

Constable Ross Fowler, from Glasgow, was pictured among thousands of fans in Glasgow city centre, in scenes that were condemned by police chiefs.

Wearing a light blue hoodie, the off-duty officer can be seen with arms outstreched in the middle of the square as other revellers clamber over a nearby statue.

Thousands descended on the city centre on Saturday to celebrate the club’s Premiership title win despite warnings about a surge in Covid cases in the city.

Several arrests were made amid scenes First Minister Nicola Sturgeon branded “selfish” and “disgusting” as the occasion spilled over into disorder and violence.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “We were made aware of images circulating online and following inquiries, a 23-year-old man was given a fixed penalty notice for breaching coronavirus regulations. The circumstances will be considered by the Professional Standards Department.”

At the time it was reported that 28 arrests were made on Saturday but there has been no mention of any follow up court appearances.

On Monday Police Scotland announced that they were investigating videos of Ibrox players singing Sweet Caroline with their special add-ons.
