Strathearn Herald - - NEWS - Court Re­porter

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.
