Cops said the alleged disturbance, which reportedly involved a chainsaw, occurred following a collision involving a car and a stationary police motor.

Two officers were injured and treated by paramedics.

Now, the Scottish Conservative councillor has called for more resources to be issued to police to help patrol the area after the incident.

He said: “Like the local community, I was extremely shocked to hear about this incident. My thoughts are with the two police officers who were injured as a result of this man’s actions.

“Our hardworking officers never know what they could face in the line of duty and this incident occurring on a bank holiday Monday afternoon is a prime example of that.

“My thanks go to them for the swift manner in which they dealt with this and I hope that there will be sufficient resources to ensure that there can be an increased police presence in my ward in light of this.”

A Police Scotland statement read: "A 30-year-old man has been arrested and charged following a disturbance involving a weapon, and a collision on Glasgow Road in Paisley.

"Two officers were injured and were treated by paramedics. The 30-year-old man is due to appear at Paisley Sheriff Court on Tuesday, May 7."
