A COCKENZIE woman has been ordered to pay two fines after she assaulted two police officers and was caught in possession of an offensive weapon.

Lisa Bissett attacked PC Kirsten Capaldi and PC Lucy Langford by kicking the pair to the body in the car park of Musselburgh Police Station on July 21 last year.

Bissett, of High Street, then went on to commit a further offence three days later when she brandished a glass bottle at an unknown person and was seen to be shouting and swearing.

The second incident took place at Hunter Square, Edinburgh, on July 24 last year.

The 42-year-old pleaded guilty to the offences during an appearance at Edinburgh Sheriff Court last September and sentence was deferred for her good behaviour.

She returned to the dock for sentencing last Wednesday, where Sheriff John Cook marked both charges by ordering Bissett to pay fines of £320 each, resulting in a total financial penalty of £640.

Bissett had pleaded guilty to the two police assaults, as well as to possessing an offensive weapon, namely a glass bottle, behaving in a threatening or abusive manner and brandishing the bottle.
