Former world boxing champion Scott Harrison was released from prison today in time to celebrate New Year.
The 31-year-old was freed after serving four months behind bars.
He emerged from the main gate of Barlinnie prison in Glasgow just after 8am, dressed in a grey suit and white shirt and carrying a plastic bag with his belongings.
He refused to comment but gave a thumbs up sign as he was driven away in a red taxi.
Harrison was jailed earlier this year for a total of 10 months on a series of charges.
The boxer was jailed on 2 September for two months for assaulting his girlfriend and a police officer, four months for drink driving and two months for breaking a night time curfew, a condition of bail while drink driving.
He received an additional two months the following week after he admitted punching a stranger in the face on a night out.
His prison term was reduced by two months earlier in December and he was released today after serving half his sentence.Reuse content
