Charlotte Douglas (26) failed to appear at Falkirk Sheriff Court last Thursday having admitted assaulting the officer – attempting to head butt her and repeatedly spitting on her body – at Falkirk Police Station on March 8 last year.
Stephen Biggam, defence solicitor, said Douglas, 3 Fleming Place, Blackridge, Bathgate, could not come to court because she tested positive for COVID-19.
