Selkirk teenager admits assaulting police and making homophobic remarks
A teenager has admitted struggling violently with police officers and making homophobic remarks to them.
Amber Lauder, 19, also pleaded guilty at Selkirk Sheriff Court to three charges of police assault and behaving in a threatening or abusive manner towards officers in Tulley Court in Galashiels on July 28 last year.
In a police van heading towards Hawick police station, she repeatedly kicked a female police constable and bit her, as well as kicking a male officer.
At the Wilton Hill station, Lauder kicked the same female officer to the body and swore at her, then called her a lesbian.
Lauder, of Bleachfield Road in Selkirk, had a difficult upbringing, the court was told, and she was also described as vulnerable.
Sentencing was deferred for three months for good behaviour.
