A teenager prepared for a month off the booze by getting drunk and biting a policeman.
Nicolle Williamson, 19, was to start her dryathlon the following day in memory of her best friend who died of cancer.
She downed wine and shots during a party at her home in Comrie, Perthshire, but the police turned up and she ended up arguing with them.
Williamson bit PC Evan Macdonald on the arm and kicked PC Louise Robertson on the legs.
Her solicitor David Sinclair told Perth Sheriff Court: “She over consumed alcohol on the night in question.
"She was clearly out of her depth. It was a relatively early start and her and her friend were drinking shots, consumed quickly, and also a bottle of wine.”
Hotel worker Williamson admitted assaulting the officers last Hogmanay.
The court heard she was so ashamed she has not touched alcohol since and has done charity work.
Sheriff Fiona Tait told her to carry out 40 hours’ unpaid work in the community.
