Police chased a man they wanted to interview and when they caught up with him, spittle landed on an officer's face during a struggle.

Findlay also pleaded guilty to a breach of bail and resisting arrest and he had sentence deferred until April 30 for a background report.

Fiscal depute Emily Hood told Sheriff Gordon Fleetwood that officers saw Findlay and another man in Muirtown Street and wanted to speak to them.

However they both ran off in opposite directions with police giving chase.

Ms Hood said that Findlay was traced to Queen Street. "He was seen to be climbing over a gate but fell to the ground and he was restrained,” she said.

"He was volatile, tensed his arms and while he was struggling, spat on the face of one officer."
