A COCKENZIE woman who assaulted two police officers in the car park of Musselburgh police station has had her sentence deferred.

Lisa Bissett, 42, kicked PC Kirsten Capaldi and PC Lucy Langford on the body as she was being taken into the station after she had been arrested on a separate matter.

Bisset was eventually released from custody but reoffended three days later when she was seen shouting, swearing and brandishing a glass bottle during an incident on Edinburgh’s Hunter Square.

She was due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court last Wednesday but, when the case called, her lawyer Stuart Henry told the court that his client was in police custody after being arrested on a more serious charge.

Sheriff John Cook agreed to defer sentence on these matters to next March to await the outcome of the outstanding solemn matter which is still to call at court.

Bissett, of High Street, Cockenzie, had pleaded guilty to the two police assaults at Musselburgh police station car park on July 21.

She has also admitted offences of possessing an offensive weapon, namely a glass bottle, and to behaving in a threatening or abusive manner and brandishing a glass bottle at Hunter Square, Edinburgh, on July 24 this year.
