A Rosyth woman, who assaulted two ambulance workers and a nursing assistant, has been fined.

Samarra Marcus, 35, of Sherbrooke Road, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court for sentencing.

She previously admitted that on November 5 last year at Guildhall Street, Dunfermline, she assaulted an ambulance paramedic and kicked him on the body.

Then at the Victoria Hospital, Kirkcaldy, she assaulted an ambulance technician by punching him on the head.

Also at the hospital, she assaulted a nursing assistant by kicking her on the body.

Depute fiscal Amy Robertson said the incident began after there were calls made over concerns about a woman. Marcus was unconscious and was taken into an ambulance.

Defence solicitor Aime Allan said her client has significant mental health issues and this had been a “manic episode”.

“She’s extremely sorry for the way she reacted. She’s very embarrassed to be appearing in court,” she added.

Sheriff Wylie Robertson told Marcus: “The court takes a very serious view of any assaults on NHS workers and they will not be tolerated.”

He fined Marcus £940.
