A YOUNG mum kicked off at police by punching one and trying to headbutt another.

Cops attended at an address at around 4am on July 28, 2020 where Stephanie Feeney was present.

Depute fiscal Victoria Keen told Glasgow Sheriff Court that, although officers were there on an unrelated matter, the 20-year-old became volatile and began to shout at them.

When police told her she was under arrest she became violent and punched one officer to the left arm with her right hand.

Another officer took hold of her arms but she began to struggle, lunging forwards and trying to headbutt the constable.

Feeney had to be taken to the ground by officers in an attempt to place handcuffs on her.

Feeney's defence brief told the court his client is mum to a four-year-old daughter and said: "Her actions were utterly unacceptable and she is appalled at her actions towards these police officers.

"She is dealing with tragic personal circumstances in her own personal life and has been dealing with these tragic circumstances using alcohol.

"She has since curbed her alcohol intake."

Sheriff Charles Lugton sentenced Feeney, of Rutherglen, to a community payback order with 12 months of supervision.

She was tagged and will have to stay at home between the hours of 7pm and 7am for 65 days.
