Arrested teen butted officer

Have your say

A TEENAGER who headbutted a police officer in the Capital did so after being arrested on another matter.

Robert Large, 18, who lives in the Morvenside area of Wester Hailes, struck the officer at a police station in Edinburgh only two weeks ago.

The man had been brought into custody at St Leonard’s police station on a separate matter before the attack, Edinburgh Sheriff Court heard yesterday.

Large had pleaded guilty to assault before Sheriff John Horsburgh QC.

He was fined £200 for the offence.
