A MAN was so drunk when kicking off and attacking cops that he defecated himself while being led to a police van.

Officers were called to Carmen View, Dumbarton, in the early hours of July 22 last year to reports of a disturbance by Darren Aird.

Police arrived around 3.45am and found 20-year-old Aird upstairs, "extremely" intoxicated. On seeing cops, he immediately started shouting and swearing.

"Get the f*** out of my house you c*nts," he said.

And, "I have done f*** all" and "better get out of my house".

The fiscal depute told Dumbarton Sheriff Court on March 26 that Aird was arrested and as they put handcuffs on him, he turned towards one of the officers.

"He attempted to headbutt him," said the prosecutor. "No contact was made. He proceeded to try to bite him on his left shoulder, however, he failed to make contact.

"He was taken to the ground. He continued to resist police officers and slapped an officer to the left side of his face.

"He was handcuffed and removed.

"Due to the level of intoxication, he defecated himself while being removed to be put in the [police cell] van."

As he was put in the van, Aird shouted: "F*** off you right bastards."

Aird later pleaded guilty to shouting, swearing and uttering threats of violence.

He admitted assaulting an officer and attempting to headbutt and bite him.

And he accepted he assaulted a second officer by slapping him.

Defence solicitor Scott Adair accepted his client's behaviour was "over the top".

He said: "His arrest and what he has been told in how he behaved has brought a change in attitude."

Sheriff William Gallacher branded Aird a "drunken ned".

He said: "Your behaviour was simply disgusting."

The sheriff fined him £800 plus a £40 victim surcharge.

He added: "I don't expect to see you again."
