In the News 1971...

An assistant manager and his three "Bouncers" ejected a 14 strong stag party after a fight in a city bar, the High Court in Glasgow was told today.

Then they decided to "have a go" and went outside and held three of the four men alleged to have taken part in the uproar. "I realised the police would be there in a minute, so I thought it would be quite a sensible idea to apprehend a few before the police arrived," said assistant manager, Mr Alan Buchanan (31).

On trial are four youths, Alexander Lynn, Edward Corrigan, John Lynn and James Wilson. They deny assaulting five men and committing a breach of the peace in the Bier Keller, 122 Union Street, on Saturday 24 1971.

An Argument.

Alexander Lynn, Edward Corrigan and John Lynn lodged a special defence of impeachment. Today Mr Buchanan, 5 Hillview Crescent, Calderbraes, Uddingston, said that 14 people arrived at the Bier Keller about 7 o'clock that night.

Three of them Alexander Lynn, Corrigan and Wilson got into an argument with an American Sailor, Charles Parker, who was a regular customer. Mr Buchanan said that he had warned the group that they would have to behave and that if they didn't all 14 would be put out.

He told three of his bouncers to usher them out, and as the group went one of them said - "There's the bastard, We'll get him out now."

John Lynn hit one of the bouncers, a Mr Braman, on the face with "something shiny." Mr Buchanan ran behind the bar and put through an emergency call to the police. When he came back, two of his men were holding the door closed and the four accused and two others were trying to get back inside.

"Bouncer" hit

Mr Buchanan and the three men went outside and managed to catch Alexander Lynn, Corrigan and Wilson. During the struggle, he said that another bouncer, Mr McAtasnie, was struck on the head with a lemonade bottle and John Lynn and another youth were "In the process of kicking in a large plate-glass window."

Cross-examined by Mr David Abbey, for Alexander Lynn, Mr Buchanan said he spoke to Lynn when the party first arrived and it was explained that it was Lynn's stag party to celebrate his forth-coming marriage.
