A Lochaber man had sentence deferred for knocking a police officer unconscious and pushing another down the stairs.
Fort William Sheriff Court heard that Reece MacIsaac, of Birch Road, Caol, assaulted Constable Stuart Rowe by launching himself towards the officer causing him to fall backwards over a settee.
The constable then struck his head on the floor and was rendered unconscious to his injury.
The 19-year-old admitted the offence at an earlier hearing.
He also pleaded guilty to assaulting Constable Morven Brown by seizing her by the clothing and pushing her backwards, causing her to fall down a flight of stairs and strike her head on a radiator to her injury.
Both offences were committed at MacIsaac’s former home in Wallace Place, Plantation, Fort William, on July 23 last year.
He also admitted breaking a bail condition.
And he pleaded guilty to further charges of assaulting paramedic Terence Jackson by spitting blood in his face and struggling aggressively with police officers at his home on September 19 last year.
Sentence was deferred until yesterday for a background report.
But Sheriff Jim Scott further deferred sentence yesterday because MacIsaac was already subject to a community payback order.
The sheriff ordered another CPO review on January 31 and deferred sentence on the other matters to the same date.
Dejan Watson, 19, of Inverlochy Court, Inverlochy, appeared in court with MacIsaac.
He previously pleaded guilty to attempting to prevent Constable Brown from arresting MacIsaac by trying to take possession of her CS spray during the incident in Wallace Place on July 23, 2015.
Watson also admitted breaking a bail condition.
Sheriff Scott deferred sentence on Watson until October 13.
