Man 'drove car into crowd' after fireworks display
The motorist allegedly bumped into people walking back from Aberdeen beach on Sunday.
A motorist was attacked after allegedly driving his car into a crowd of Bonfire Night revellers.
The man repeatedly bumped into people walking back from a fireworks display at Aberdeen beach on Sunday night, according to several witnesses.
They included a couple pushing their baby in a pram along Urquhart Road, which was closed to vehicles.
The driver was then assaulted by one of the people he had bumped into, witnesses said, and during the scuffle his car rolled into another vehicle.
A 24-year-old woman who was struck by the car said: "Everyone was waking up Urquhart Road and the man in the car was getting impatient trying to get past people.
"He started driving a bit faster trying to get people to move and I heard people shouting at him.
"I felt his tyre touching the back of my leg so I turned round and put my hands on his car telling him to stop."

She added: "Another man came over to the man driving, opened his door and started shouting at him and they ended up getting in a little bit of a fight.
"After screaming abuse at everyone he finally got back in his car, speeding while holding his hand on the horn and driving like a lunatic through the traffic of humans."
The 36-year-old woman driving the car the man's vehicle collided with said: "This was a good event spoiled by this man.
"There were kids and family present - I had my disabled mum and kids in the car he just didn't care."
Nobody is believed to have been injured but the incident has been reported to police, who are seeking the driver of an orange Vauxhall Mokka.
Constable Alan Duncan said: "We are carrying out enquiries following a report relating to the conduct of a driver and an assault in the Urquhart Road area.
"We would urge anyone who saw the incidents described or who was in the area at the time and may be able to assist us with enquiries to contact police."
About 12,000 attended the display in Aberdeen on Sunday.
