Half a dozen police officers struggled to pacify an Inverness man after a city centre disturbance in the summer.

Inverness Sheriff Court heard that the police were called to Riverside Street after a CCTV operator saw 35-year-old Ethan Cascarino, of Bruce Avenue, Inverness involved in a fracas.

Fiscal depute David Morton said: "They went to speak to him to establish his identity and he took exception to this. He struggled violently with them as they tried to arrest him.

"This is one of the more notable offences as it took several officers to ultimately control him."

Defending, John MacColl told Sheriff Gary Aitken: "He had just been placed on a drug treatment and testing order, which is going well, and had not been on drugs.

"But his recollection is pretty poor because he had drunk too much."

Cascarino, who admitted resisting arrest by tensing his body and struggling violently, was fined £680.
