Bujar Palamani, who was 42, was convicted of assault at Glasgow Sheriff Court on 4 April 2011. He was sentenced to two years and one month in prison.

The SPS said Strathclyde Police had been notified of Mr Palamani's death and a report would be sent to the procurator fiscal.

A fatal accident inquiry may be held in due course.
