Fiscal depute Colin Neilson told the court the woman was in her flat when she woke to be greeted by Grant standing in her doorway.
He said: “She challenged the accused about being in her home and she called the police.”
Mr Neilson said that due to his “intoxicated state” and claims he had Covid-19 officers took him to hospital.
He added: “He said he would spit and he spat in the direction of an officer who managed to move his arm to avoid being hit.”
Defence agent John Hardy withheld mitigation until sentencing.
Sheriff Philip Mann deferred sentence on Grant, of HMP Grampian, Peterhead, until August 27.
