A 33-YEAR-OLD Inverness man who spat towards a police officer will be sentenced next month.

Ross Williamson, of Jamaica Place, appeared at Inverness Sheriff Court this week and admitted culpable and reckless conduct and shouting and swearing in a police van.

Sheriff Sara Matheson was told that Williamson had been arrested on another matter and placed in the rear cage of a police van on May 7 last year.

It was while he was waiting to be taken into the custody suite of Burnett Road Police Station in Inverness that he committed the breach of the peace.

Fiscal depute Robert Weir said his conduct continued in his cell.

“As police officers and custody staff were leaving the cell, he spat in the direction of one police witness,” Mr Weir added.

Williamson deferred sentence until May 21 for a background report and a restriction of liberty order assessment. His bail was continued.
