A drunk man fell over as he tried escape ambulance crews who were helping him and then attempted to punch a police officer.
Edvinas Petraitis, whose address was given as Mill Court, Woodside, began to act aggressively towards ambulance technicians who were trying to help him on George Street on February 17.
The 28-year-old then fell and hit his head before police were called.
Yesterday at Aberdeen Sheriff Court Petraitis pled guilty to shouting and swearing and to pushing a police officer and attempting to punch him on the head.
Sheriff Robert Vaughan deferred sentence on Petraitis for six months for him to be of good behaviour.
Fiscal depute Katy Begg said ambulance technicians were sent to the scene at around 10.45pm after reports of a drunk male with injuries.
She said: “While in the ambulance the accused became aggressive towards them, lunged towards them and was shouting and swearing at them.
“Due to his behaviour they allowed the accused to leave the ambulance.
“As he did so he lost his balance and fell and hit his head.”
Ms Begg said Petraitis’ flatmate then arrived and led him away.
However, as his injuries required treatment, police were called.
Ms Begg added police noted he was “extremely intoxicated” and took him back to the ambulance, at which point he was “compliant”.
She said: “However, while within the ambulance he became impatient and attempted to leave the ambulance by pushing a police officer in his chest.”
He went on to attempt to punch the officer and was “restrained” before being taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary to have his injuries assessed.
Petraitis, who appeared without a solicitor, said he was now trying to do the best with his life.
Speaking after the hearing, John Marr, ambulance union secretary at GMB Scotland, said: “The ambulance service is there to help the public, so why should they be verbally and physically abused while carrying out their jobs?
“We would support the maximum punishment being given out.”
