An Alloa woman called for the police to attend her house then shouted abuse at them until she was arrested.

Suzanne Whyte, 45, of McKinlay Crescent, appeared for sentencing at Alloa Sheriff Court.

She admitted that on August 30 at her home and during a journey to Falkirk police station, she acted in an aggressive manner.

She repeatedly shouted and swore, repeatedly made offensive remarks, stated she was in possession of a knife, threw a can and made threats of violence.

Depute fiscal Rachel Wallace said when police attended at Whyte’s home she quickly started shouting and swearing at them. She was arrested, put in handcuffs and taken to the police station when she said: “I’ve got a knife.”

She continued to shout abuse, threatening to punch officers when she got out of the van.

Sheriff Neil Bowie told Whyte: “You’re developing a pattern of behaviour towards the police that is totally unacceptable and you have little or no remorse.

“If you continue in this way the court will run out of options. You’re already skating on thin ice.”

He imposed a 110-day restriction of liberty order.
