A well-known Dundee police officer has been charged in connection with an alleged brawl outside a casino.
Craig Tosh, 42, a long-time community officer in Ardler, was arrested last month and subsequently charged following the incident.
The alleged assault is said to have taken place outside the Grosvenor Casino on West Marketgait in the city centre.
Sources said Tosh has been suspended by Police Scotland while inquiries into the December 18 incident continue.
The police today confirmed that a 42-year-old man has been charged in relation to the alleged attack, but declined to comment on the identity of the man or if he was one of its personnel.
A 28-year-old woman was also charged in connection with the incident and a report has been submitted to the procurator fiscal.
A police spokeswoman said: “Police Scotland can confirm a 42-year-old man has been charged in connection with an incident at West Marketgait on Sunday December 18. A report was submitted to the procurator fiscal.”
The Tele understands an altercation is said to have taken place inside the casino and involved four people.
It is believed that individuals were asked to leave and were dealt with by the in-house security at the venue.
They were taken out of the casino separately and at different times but the group came into contact again and an alleged assault took place outside, before Tosh was arrested and charged.
Police were already on hand to deal with the incident as they were outside the casino at the time.
A spokeswoman for the Grosvenor Casino confirmed they were aware of an incident on December 18.
She said: “The safety of our team members and customers is our number one priority at Grosvenor Casinos.
“We are, of course, working with the police in their inquiries by providing CCTV footage from our internal and external cameras.”
A spokesman for the Crown Office said: “The procurator fiscal at Dundee received a report concerning a 42-year-old man in connection with alleged incidents on December 18.
“The report remains under consideration.”
