Woman bit police officers after assaulting guests at Aberdeen wedding

Stephanie Fallon appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court

A mum-of-three has admitted biting two police officers following a drunken bust-up at a wedding.

Stephanie Fallon, 28, was “completely intoxicated” when she also turned on wedding guests – assaulting one woman with a shoe.

She appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court, where she admitted biting the police officers and kicking one of them.

Fallon, whose address was given in court papers as Balnagask Circle, Aberdeen, also admitted assaulting a woman by pushing her, and the other by hitting her on the head with a shoe.

The offences took place at the Northern Hotel, on Great Northern Road, on May 20.

Fiscal depute Karen Dow told the court that at around 10.45pm one of the women initially approached Fallon, who was crying, to see if she was alright and to pull up her dress which had slipped down, exposing her chest.

Fallon, who is a student, then went on to push the woman and later strike the second woman to the back of the head with her shoe.

The court was told when police arrived Fallon kicked one officer in the stomach.

She was then restrained on the ground and arrested.

Ms Dow added: “While on the floor, the accused bit the officer to the left leg, above the knee.”

The court was told that due to her violent behaviour police decided to walk the short distance to Kittybrewster police station, but en route Fallon dropped to her knees and bit another officer.

Fallon’s solicitor said her client was “completely intoxicated” at the time of the incident.

She added: “She remembers very little of that night.

“She takes full responsibility for her actions. She deeply regrets her behaviour.

“She apologises to everyone concerned.”

Sentencing Fallon, Sheriff Malcolm Garden told her: “I take into account the fact this seems to be out of character for you.”

He added: “These are serious matters and they involve assaults on members of the police force.”

Sheriff Garden ordered Fallon to carry out 160 hours of unpaid work and warned her: “This is not something you can treat as a joke.”
