A MAN stopped by police in Greenock allegedly fled on to a nearby railway line.
Officers were detaining the 39-year-old in Belville Street on Saturday around 1.30pm when the incident happened resulting in disruption to the rail network.
Sergeant Jason Logsdon said: “Officers eventually traced the male on a nearby train whereby he was arrested for a number of alleged offences including racially abusing one of the officers and resisting arrest.”
He will appear at court on a later date.
Area police commander Chief Inspector Paul Cameron said: “It is completely unacceptable to racially abuse anyone in society. Our communities in Inverclyde will not tolerate such behaviour.”
