Woman whacked officer with shoe

A woman who whacked a police officer on the head with a shoe was fined £150 at Stranraer Sheriff Court this week.

Helen McKeand, 55, of 15 John Simpson Drive, Stranraer, admitted shouting and swearing at police in North Strand Street in the town on February 12 before assaulting an officer by striking her on the back of the head with her shoe.

Twenty-five-year old Darren McKeand, of the same address, was ordered to complete a community payback order of 100 hours after he admitted struggling and fighting with police officers on the same day at the same location.
