Drunk fined for remarks

A woman found asleep in the doorway of a Newton Stewart solicitor’s office with a pizza box on top of her on December 15 has been fined £500.

Christine McCreadie, 35, of 16 North Main Street, Wigtown, was not in court to hear her punishment but admitted by letter being abusive to police officers who tried to rouse her by swearing and calling them derogatory names. She struggled violently and was eventually placed in a police van and taken away.
