Inverness Sheriff Court heard police had to be called to the house of an 18-year-old where a woman was hysterical
The court was told Stephen Dick of Quayside Court, Inverness, invited people to his house for a celebration on May 30.
He then called the police himself when things got out of hand and when officers arrived they found a young woman covered in blood.
An ambulance was called and Dick was asked to leave the house as the woman was in an hysterical state.
But Dick, who had been drinking, locked the police officers in the property as he left and ambulance staff could not gain access to treat the casualty.
Dick was eventually traced and brought back to his flat to open the door.
He was arrested and admitted obstructing police.
Defence solicitor Marc Dickson told the court: "He locked the door out of force of habit after police asked him to leave."
Dick is currently detained in relation to another offence and due to his age, Sheriff Fleetwood had to call for a background report.
Dick will re-appear for sentencing on October 17.
