Handcuffed man became abusive and lunged at police officers
A long-time offender appeared in Lerwick Sheriff Court today after a weekend bust-up in the town.
Police were summoned to a house in Gilbertson Road in the early hours of Saturday by the woman living there. They found Ebrahim Hassan, 46, of North Road, Lerwick, in the kitchen. When the woman made allegations about him he began shouting at her. Police tried to defuse the situation and placed Hassan in handcuffs to arrest him on another matter.
Acting procurator fiscal Paul Rutherford said Hassan then became enraged and abusive. The police told him he was being detained for breach of the peace and as they were leading him down the corridor of the house he lunged at one of the two officers.
Appearing from custody this afternoon Hassan admitted breach of the peace and resisting arrest.
Sheriff William Summers deferred sentence until Wednesday when Hassan is due to appear in court on another matter. He was released on bail on condition he does not approach or enter the house in Gilbertson Road.
