Teenager arrested over disturbance during Indiana Jones filming

Police say the incident happened at Renfield Street on Saturday afternoon as the cameras continued to roll on a parade scene being filmed in Glasgow.

A teenage boy has been arrested after an incident amid filming for what is thought to be the new Indiana Jones movie in Glasgow.

Police say the disturbance happened at Renfield Street around 3.20pm on Saturday as the cameras continued to roll on a parade scene being filmed in the city centre.

Some streets will be closed on various days for the rest of the month due to filming, with the “prohibition of pedestrian movements during ‘action’” in some cases.

Vehicle movements, waiting, loading and unloading are also prohibited across similar times and places.

Despite filming continuing on Sunday, action was brought to an abrupt halt after one of the actors took a spill performing a scene and had to be seen by an ambulance crew.

Director James Mangold could be seen instructing actor Olivier Richters on his performance, aggressively running through the band – his face contorted in mock anger – and running with his arms aloft.
