A Glasgow based taxi driver who was suspended for punching after a clash with a woman who allegedly attacked him has had his license temporarily restored. The cab driver Kenny Clark was suspended for six months by council bosses after the “disturbance” with the 29-year-old woman who has been accused of assault and vandalism.
It’s claimed she attacked the driver and his cab after he took her to the wrong bank. Cops took no action against Kenny – and thousands jumped to his defence in a bid to help him reinstate his license.
The taxi driver has now won the first part of his appeal and he was allowed to pick up his badge from Glasgow City Chambers. His fellow cabbie Stef Shaw, 52, said it was an emotional day for his fellow Kenny. He’s been driving taxis in the city for over 30 years, the suspension was shocking and devastating for him.
More than 5,000 people have signed the petition for Kenny and the cabbie has been overwhelmed with the support he’s received. Kenny was massively appreciative and thanked everyone who supported him in the bad time.
Stef said: “It’s a result for Glasgow – and for justice in Glasgow.”
