A Dunbar resident has been ordered to be of good behaviour by a sheriff after she pleaded guilty to assaulting two police officers.

Susan Miller appeared in the dock at Edinburgh Sheriff Court last week to admit two offences, including punching one officer on the body and kicking two PCs.

The officers had been called out to Miller’s home at the town’s Lawson Court to deal with a noise complaint when they were assaulted last month.

Miller, 47, admitted conducting herself in a disorderly manner by acting aggressively and shouting and swearing.

She also uttered offensive remarks, made excessive noise from her home and committed a breach of the peace.

And when the police arrived at her flat, Miller seized one officer and punched him to the body.

She then kicked both constables on the body during the arrest.

Miller admitted both offences when she appeared at the city court last Thursday.

Sheriff John Mundy was told that Miller was currently subject to a community payback order which was imposed at an earlier court hearing regarding a separate offence of “analogous behaviour”. The sheriff decided to let the current order run its course and ordered Miller to comply with it and to be of good behaviour in the meantime.

Sentence was deferred to January 4 next year.

Miller pleaded guilty to committing a breach of the peace and assaulting two police officers at her home address on August 12.
