Wishaw Press - - TRANSPORT -

A man who as­saulted a po­lice of­fi­cer in woods near­wishaw has walked free from court.

Wil­liam Mitchell ap­peared at Hamil­ton Sher­iff Court hav­ing al­ready ad­mit­ted his guilt to two charges against him.

On Septem­ber 6 last year, at Raven­scraig­wood, near to Roberthall Road in­wishaw, Mitchell punched the of­fi­cer on the body and re­peat­edly tried to punch him.

He also acted in an ag­gres­sive man­ner to­wards po­lice and strug­gled with them as well as shout­ing and swear­ing.

A sec­ond charge that Mitchell, for­merly ofwishaw but now of Isla Av­enue, New­mains, tried to punch a sec­ond of­fi­cer was dropped by pros­e­cu­tors.

Mitchell , 41, was ad­mon­ished on his lat­est ap­pear­ance in the dock.
