An Elgin woman who acted in what a sheriff described as "shameful and disgusting" was ordered to carry out 200 hours of unpaid community work.

Sheriff Robert Frazer told 22-year-old Tifina Leonce, of Scone Road, Elgin: "You are very close to a jail sentence. You have a previous conviction for a similar matter."

Leonce had previously admitted a series of offences, all committed in Inverness on October 29, 2023.

Inverness Sheriff Court was told that Leonce shouted and swore at police officers, ambulance and hospital staff in Inverness's High Street and Raigmore Hospital.

The charge which she admitted, went on to say that she repeatedly struck her head on a police van cell door and smeared bodily fluid over walls of the hospital and the ambulance.

Leonce also pleaded guilty to spitting on a police constable, assaulting an ambulance operative and striking him on the head, and throwing a used tampon at a police constable in Burnett Road Police Station.
