A MAN found bleeding from his face, who headbutted police who turned up to help, has been ordered to do 200 hours of unpaid work.

Andrew Glancy, of Glenhuntly Road, Port Glasgow, previously admitted shouting and swearing in Penniecroft Avenue, Dumbarton.

He also assaulted an officer in the October 9, 2016 incident. The officer was uninjured.

The 32-year-old appeared at Dumbarton Sheriff Court last week where fiscal depute Emma Thomson explained how there was an anonymous 999 call at 5.30am about a man bleeding from his face, mouth and nose.

When officers arrived, Glancy immediately became aggressive.

He then headbutted the officer, striking him on the right cheek.

Defence solicitor Roddy Boag told the court there was a letter of apology confirming “he is a worthwhile person”.

He added: "There’s genuine remorse and regret and he has let people down.”

Sheriff Simon Pender, noting Glancy had no other criminal record, ordered him to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work within 10 months.
