A man is to stand trial accused of deliberately “endangering the life” of a man he had allegedly just threatened by driving at him at speed.
Omar Rafiq faces three charges over an alleged incident in Dundee’s Sandeman Street on August 12 this year.
It is alleged he first assaulted Bashir Hussain by pushing him on the body.
Prosecutors say he then acted in a threatening or abusive manner by shouting, swearing and acting aggressively towards Mr Hussain as well as uttering threats.
A third charge alleges that Rafiq then got behind the wheel of a Skoda Fabia and drove it at speed towards Mr Hussain.
It is alleged Mr Hussain had to jump out of the path of the vehicle to avoid being struck to the danger of his life.
Rafiq, 28, a prisoner at HMP Perth, denies three charges on indictment at Dundee Sheriff Court.
Fiscal depute Eilidh Robertson said: “There will be some agreement of evidence in this case.”
Sheriff Alastair Brown continued to the case to a trial date later this month.
