A WOMAN smashed up her Hillfoots home and damaged a car during a disturbance earlier this year.

Skye Bryson, formerly of Thornbank Road, Dollar, now living in Fife, appeared at Alloa Sheriff Court.

She admitted that on February 28 at her home she repeatedly shouted, swore, acted aggressively, smashed household items and a shower screen, repeatedly struck and kicked a car, smashed the windscreen and broke a wing mirror.

The 22-year-old also assaulted a police officer by pushing him on the head and seizing him by the throat.

On the same day at Falkirk police station, she assaulted a custody officer by kicking him on the body.

Defence solicitor Michael Lowrie said his client had been suffering from post-natal depression and her mental health was "extremely poor" at the time.

He added: "She does not have a great recollection of matters. She later contacted the police directly to apologise to them."

The court was told Bryson was now living in the Lochgelly area.

Sheriff Craig Harris imposed a structured deferred sentence and transferred the case to Dunfermline Sheriff Court where Bryson will appear on August 25.
