A MAN who assaulted two officers in Pilmuir Street in Dunfermline says he cannot remember anything about the night of the incident.

Jordan Bruce appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court for sentencing last Wednesday.

Bruce, 23, of Winifred Crescent, Kirkcaldy, previously admitted that on April 12, at Pilmuir Street, in a police vehicle travelling to Dunfermline Police Station, he behaved in a threatening or abusive manner which was likely to cause a reasonable person to suffer fear or alarm in that he did shout, swear, and act in an aggressive manner, kick and headbutt the cell door within the police vehicle and utter offensive remarks.

He also resisted, obstructed or hindered two constables and struggled with them and kicked out with his legs.

He assaulted one constable by attempting to headbutt him, and he assaulted another constable as he spat in his face.

Bruce, who represented himself in court, said that everything in a social work report "read accurately".

Sheriff Craig McSherry asked: "You stopped taking anti-depressive medication, is that right?"

Bruce replied: "Yes, I remember nothing of that night at all."

Sheriff McSherry said: "Given the nature of the charges, I will impose a sentence of 200 hours of unpaid work as a direct alternative to a custodial sentence."
