Brown’s defence agent said Brown had a “real problem with authority” and that the assaults occurred after Brown became upset at police questioning her about her young son’s whereabouts when he was “perfectly safe” and being cared for by other family members.

He added: “She was sleeping at a friend’s house and had just woken up. Police were not there for her but she reacted very badly to them and to them asking where her son was.”

Sheriff John Mundy placed Brown on a community payback order for 18 months under supervision.
