Thomas Morin, 66, was handed a £500 fine by the Glasgow Sheriff Court after pleading guilty to shouting homophobic abuse at a number of people in Glasgow at the Queen Street station on the 4th March.
Appearing in court six days later the man was fined £500 after he pleaded guilty.
Arresting officer PC Alan Kavanagh, said,
“Targeting anyone with intimidating abuse because of who they are is disgusting and we will never tolerate it. Our officers were patrolling the station when we heard his comments so were quickly able to detain him and bring him before the courts.
“I am pleased that Morin was handed this fine and I hope he thinks again before acting in such an offensive way.
“If anyone ever experiences homophobic or hate related abuse I would encourage them to report it to BTP. You can send a text discreetly to 61016 and we will investigate”.
