T in Park thug brazenly hurls object a police van


POLICE are investigating the most disturbing video yet to emerge from T in the Park – the moment a yob hurls an object through the window of a moving cop van.

The thug flings the fist-sized missile over the heads of campers before brazenly turning to face the camera.

And in yet further evidence of the lawlessness during parts of the festival, another idiot is filmed launching a full beer can into a mass of people.

A third clip to emerge shows a reveller speaking to uniformed police officers before running and slide tackling a music fan.

This years’ music festival has been marred in controversy after the deaths of two 17-year-olds from suspected drug overdoses, whilst a police investigation into an alleged rape is ongoing.

A third death has been linked to the event after the body of festival goer and father-of-three James Richardson, from Wishaw, North Lanarkshire, whose body was found near a farm in Perthshire on Tuesday morning.

The latest video shows a young male fling an unidentified object from long range and with considerable force at a moving Police Scotland van.

An unseen bystander tells onlookers to “move, move” as the police van approaches as if to give the thrower a better shot.

The missile is seen arcing over the heads of festival goers before flying in through the passenger window.

The yob then casually turns his back he stares straight into the camera recording the scene. No-one around the young man seems shocked by his behaviour or takes any action.

A bystander can be heard laughing and saying: “He got it in the window! He got it in the window!”

In another shockingly reckless act, a pair of thugs are seen launching a full can of beer into the crowd. One youngster opens the can and, as beer sprays out, passes it to his friend. He then lobs it high into the air above a sea of people.

Seemingly oblivious to the potential danger that his actions could cause to someone if the can was to land on their head, one on-looker mentions that it was a “great throw”.

A third video shows a man approaching two police officers and appearing to talk to them before slide tackling another man who was standing chatting to friends, oblivious to the imminent assault he was to suffer.

The man touches both of the police officers on the arm and waves a finger at them before slinking off and launching himself at his fellow reveller with a two-footed slide.

Another video to emerge shows a young male who appears to be under the influence of drugs, writing uncontrollably in a camp chair.

Comments on the clip suggest that the male in question was sacked from his job as a result of the state it got in at T in the Park, with one user saying: “He got sacked because he got in that state.”

Troubles at this year’s festival has led to some calling for the festival to be stopped altogether.

Annette Aitken took to Facebook to vent her anger and said: “They should stop T in the Park.”

Whilst Wilf Marshall took a pop at organisers who defended the festival by commenting: “Defending the undefendable. Human life & public order are so much more important than making money.”

In regards to the footage of an object being thrown into a police van, a Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “We are aware of the video and investigating the incident. Anyone with information is asked to contact us on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you wish to remain anonymous.”

Megan Bell, 17, from County Durham and Peter MacCallum, 17, from Lochgilpead tragically died on the same night at this year’s festival.

Police have confirmed that they are investigating a report that an 18-year-old girl was raped following a night in the Slam Tent on Thursday and have carried out forensic checks on the area.
