The case was heard at Inverness Sheriff Court.

SENTENCE was deferred for a drug treatment testing order assessment on an Alness man who shouted and swore and made racist remarks while at Raigmore Hospital in Inverness.

Appearing from custody, Raymond Marshall of John Ogilvie House, Firhill admitted abusive and threatening behaviour and attempting to butt a police officer officer on the head.

The offence took place on December 12.

Solicitor David Paterson told Inverness Sheriff Court Marshall (33) was already subject to a community payback order which was subject to review and he was asking to be considered for a DTTO.

"The last thing he remembers was playing pool and waking up in the cells. He genuinely wants to get over his drug addiction."

Sentence was deferred to January 9.
