A TEENAGER from East Kilbride has been charged with alleged drink driving, possession of a class A drug and possession of a knife after a crash on the A814 last week.

Police attended the scene near to Glen Douglas in the early hours of Thursday, March 7 and identified the driver of the vehicle involved as a 19-year-old male.

Officers allegedly detected a smell of alcohol and the male subsequently failed a breath test before being arrested for drink driving.

Upon further search of the male and his vehicle, a Stanley knife was recovered along with a quantity of white powder which later tested positive for cocaine.

The driver was taken to Clydebank police station and charged with the alleged offences.

He is due to appear at Dumbarton Sheriff Court at a later date.
