One of Scotland’s top swimmers could be axed from the Commonwealth Games team after he was arrested in the US for urinating on a police car.

Edinburgh-born Dan Wallace Mr has already been suspended indefinitely from his swimming team at the University of Florida where he is trained by US Olympic team coach Gregg Troy – but the consequences of his arrest could be much more far reaching.

If it does result in his being thrown off Team Scotland, it would be a personal disaster for the 21-year-old and his parents Derek and Tanya, who sold the family home to pay for his fees at the University of Florida.

The swim star put his moment of madness down to “a poor decision in judgement”.
