A 31-year-old man admitted threatening to kick and headbutt police officers after being arrested following a dispute with guest house wardens in Inverness.
Mark Wyer, whose address was given in court as no fixed abode, also plead guilty to shouting, swearing and uttering threats to members of staff at Hazeldean Guest House, Lochalsh Road, and being in possession of a small amount of cannabis resin.
Fiscal depute Alex Swain told Inverness Sheriff Court that Wyer made a phone call to apologise for an earlier altercation, but in doing so also threatened to assault someone if there were any further issues.
When staff revoked his room access, he became angry and police were called.
Miss Swain said that, after being taken to Burnett Road police station, Wyer continued to behave in a threatening manner towards officers.
She added: “He was repeatedly saying, ‘I will kick you in the face and I will take you all out, even with handcuffs on, and I will headbutt you.”
Defence solicitor Pauline Chapman said her client had arrived in Inverness last Sunday with the intention of staying with an ex partner – but this fell through.
She said Wyer was unable to obtain mood stablisers and anti-psychotic medication because he had no documentation to register with a GP, and that this was a factor in his behaviour, adding: “He accepts his behaviour was out of order, regardless.”
Sheriff Gordon Fleetwood remanded Wyer in custody until sentencing on August 10 for the production of background reports.
