A thug who assaulted a policeman has been jailed.

Ryan Forsyth Hamilton, 34, attempted to headbutt the officer in Irvine Road, Kilwinning, on November 28.

Hamilton also behaved in a threatening or abusive manner towards two officers.

Hamilton, of Irvine’s Boyle Street, pled guilty to two charges at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court last week.

He got four months imprisonment.
