Anne Buchanan assaulted three police officers who arrived at her home after complaints from a neighbour about her behaviour.

The 36-year-old from 8 Briggs Court, Camelon, lashed out on June 21 and was arrested.

At Falkirk Sheriff Court last Thursday she appeared from custody for sentence after admitting assault, damaging property at a nearby address, shouting and swearing and making threats.

Defence lawyer Simon Hutchison said: “She admits she was out of control.”

As a direct alternative to jail, Sheriff John Mundy placed her on an 18 month supervised community order and told her to attend a substance abuse programme.
