A 38 year old Inverness woman who created disturbances in two Inverness take-away restaurants was jailed for four months.

Kimberley Fraser, formerly of Friars Street, but now on remand in HMP Grampian for more serious offences, appeared by video link at Inverness Sheriff Court.

She admitted assaulting a retail worker in McDonald in High Street, Inverness on April 20 this year and then later in the day, attempting to bite a police constable before kicking him on the thigh.

The court heard that Fraser had been asked to leave McDonald's because of her behaviour and refused repeatedly.

But when she heard that police were being called, she moved on to another take-away in nearby Church Street..

However when police arrived to speak to her, she became aggressive and unco-operative, shouting and swearing, before committing the assault.

Defence solicitor advocate Neil Wilson told the court: "I have represented her for years and there are two sides to her character.

"She can stay out of trouble and she was coming to the end of a two year period of not offending. But then she starts to get into trouble again.

"She has multiple mental health difficulties and is classed by social workers as a vulnerable woman.

"Given her status, the court could take a pragmatic view as she is likely to be on remand for a considerable time." Mr Wilson added.
