A TEENAGER has admitted making homophobic remarks towards police officers and struggling violently with them at Selkirk Sheriff Court.

Amber Lauder also pleaded guilty to three charges of police assault.

But a not guilty plea to assaulting her pregnant mother by kicking her in the stomach was accepted by the Crown.

The 19-year-old admitted behaving in a threatening or abusive manner towards police officers in Tulley Court, Galashiels, on July 28.

In a police van heading towards Hawick Police Station she repeatedly kicked a female police constable, bit her on the body and kicked a male officer on the body.

At Hawick Police Station, Lauder kicked the same female officer on the body.

Lauder, of Bleachfield Road, Selkirk, had sentence deferred until December 16 for the production of a Criminal Justice Social Work Report and a Restriction of Liberty Order assessment.
