A 24-year-old Inverness woman has been ordered to carry out 135 hours of unpaid community work and remain under a year's social work supervision after admitting an assault and causing a disturbance.

Inverness Sheriff Court was previously told that police were called to a woman lying on one of the bridges over the River Ness complaining of stomach pains on June 4, 2022.

But when officers arrived to assist, Kamila Michalowicz, of Abban Street, began swearing at them and "shouting incoherently".

Michalowicz admitted behaving in a threatening manner and flailing her legs about as she struggled with the police on the Greig Street Bridge.

She also pleaded guilty to assaulting her partner by hitting him on the head with a can of energy drink in their flat on March 24, 2023.

Fiscal depute Karen Poke told Sheriff Sara Matheson that the pair had been drinking in the city centre before returning home to continue taking alcohol.

"There was an argument about their dogs and he decided to leave to give each other some space," she said. "But this sparked a physical altercation and she punched and kicked him, knelt on his neck and hit him on the head with a can.

"Police were called and officers could hear her shouting loudly. They eventually gained entry and she told the officers: 'I just wanted to get him off me.'

"Her partner was found in a corner in the bedroom and he had a small cut to his head."

Sentence had been deferred for a background report on both cases.
