A FINE of £400 was imposed on Inverness man Ethan Cascarrino for threatening behaviour towards police at Burnett Road police station on January 19 this year.
Cacarrino (32) of Carse Road admitted the offence at Inverness Sheriff Court.
Sheriff Ian Cruickshank was told by depute fiscal Niall Macdonald police placed him under arrest at 2am due to his demeanour and intoxication.
They wanted to place him in a anti-harm suit but took exception to his own clothes being taken off.
"Ultimately his upper clothing had to be cut from him," sad the fiscal.
Rory Gowans said Cascarrino had suffered PTSD having been the victim of a stabbing which required 18 stitches and endangered his life.
Mr Gowans said it was an unprovoked incident and the person who inflicted the injury was sentenced to five years in jail.
"He shrugged this off but he wasn't coping," said Mr Gowans.
