Scottish man who fell from hotel window before attacking emergency workers ordered to pay £15k

A Scottish thug who fell from a hotel window before he assaulted emergency workers just hours after the deadlock Scotland v England clash at Wembley has been given a suspended jail sentence.

He has also been ordered to pay over £14,600 in compensation., as reported by the Daily Record.

Ross Ferris, who originates from Erskine, Renfrewshire but now lives in Fife, hit the headlines in June after plunging from the fourth floor of the Corus hotel in Lancaster Gate in central London

The man was said to be battling a cocaine-induced psychotic episode during this time.

The young dad is understood to have suffered injuries to his hand while two emergency workers were also injured during the incident, which ended up in cops discharging a stun gun at the scene.

Ferris , 27, previously pleaded guilty to two counts of assault on an emergency worker when he appeared at Southwark Crown Court in London in August.

A court spokesperson confirmed that Ferris appeared in court on Monday to be handed a six month prison sentence suspended for two years, and was told he would have to carry out 150 hours of unpaid work.

He punctured the skin of PC Alison Laughlan’s after sinking his teeth into her forearm causing bleeding and severe bruising.

She was forced to get the wound cleaned at hospital following the savage attack and faced an anxious three week wait for results for any blood-borne infections.
