Teen bit brother after night out
University student awaiting her sentence
A student bit her brother when she arrived home drunk in the early hours.
Eighteen- year- old Roseanna Dickie also became aggressive towards her mother as they tried to persuade her to go to bed to sleep off the effects of the excess alcohol.
And when police arrived at her home in Auchterarder’s High Street, she turned her attention to Sgt William Ross and attempted to punch him on the body.
“She was then restrained and taken into police custody,” explained depute fiscal Lisa Marshall at Perth Sheriff Court.
Dickie admitted pushing and then biting Jonathan Dickie on the hand, to his injury, acting in an aggressive manner by shouting and swearing and assaulting the police officer in the house on December 30 last year.
Ms Marshall said the accused had been for a night out in Perth and had returned to her mother’s house about 1.30am.
Her mother and brother were in the living room when she turned up “very drunk”, and with a dirty face and feet.
“She said she had fallen and kept repeating herself for about 10 minutes.
“Her mother and brother tried to usher her to bed to let her sleep off the drink,” added the fiscal.
“But she became aggressive, shouting and shoving at her brother.”
He tried to calm her down but she shouted and swore at him and then bit the “heel” of his right hand, breaking the skin.
He had indicated to officers that he intended to go to hospital the following morning to have the wound treated but there was no update on that.
Dickie, who gave her address as the University of Wales Trinity St David, Carmarthen, will discover her fate on September 27 after a background report has been prepared.
