This is the horrific moment a thug drove his vehicle at a man and mowed him down in the street.
Darren Clark, 24, drove his Glasgow Housing Association vehicle at victim Lewis McGhee at Carrbridge Drive, Maryhill last December .
He launched his attack after McGhee shouted at him: “Your houses are rubbish”.
In the sickening footage McGhee is seen hitting the bonnet and landing on the ground.
Clark then fled the scene by speeding off with his father alongside him, the Daily Record reported.
Lewis was taken to hospital but refused treatment although returned when he was unwell and was kept in for a few days.
Clark, from Knightswood, Glasgow, was traced back to the van captured on footage that was later given to the police.
He was initially charged with attempting to murder Lewis but the charge was to assault.
He pled guilty at Glasgow Sheriff Court to assaulting Lewis on December 2, 2017 to the danger of his life.
His dad, James, 50, was also charged with the assault but his not guilty plea was accepted by prosecutors.
Footage of the shocking incident emerged online and circulated round social media.
The court heard that some time after mid-day Lewis was walking down the road and shouted “your houses are rubbish” at the Glasgow Housing Association van on the street.
He got into an argument with James Clark, who got out of the van, being driven by his son.
Clark then drew up beside his dad and Lewis, who threw a punch at Mr Clark.
The court heard Clark then also go out the van and the three men tussled in the street, moving to the corner of the road.
Clark and his dad then got back into the van and reversed before he drove at Lewis.
He was smacked by the van and landed on the bonnet before hitting the ground and the pair drove off.
The court was told initially that Clark worked for GHA, but defence lawyer Mark Allen said Clark was a City Building employee but work was contracted by GHA.
A woman in a flat overlooking the street captured the incident on her phone, that later emerged online and was given to the police.
Clark was tracked down through his work.
Lewis was taken to hospital but refused treatment although had to return because he was unwell.
It was accepted there was a potential danger to his life because he was hit by a van, but he was kept in hospital because of a complication with his diabetes.
Sheriff Daniel Scullion deferred sentence until January and bailed Clark.
