A man once branded a “savage” by a judge has admitted assaulting a nurse at a hospital.
Scott McClymont, 22, turned on the 21-year-old woman at Glasgow’s Royal Infirmary on December 28, 2020.
McClymont struck her on the body with his shoulder, forcing the nurse into the corner of a cubicle.
He later shouted and swore at officers as well as spat in a police van.
McClymont is currently serving a six-year sentence after pleading guilty to attempted murder at the High Court in Glasgow.
McClymont and co-accused George Murray, 33, recorded themselves torturing and slashing two terrified victims.
The pair pounced on Ryan Murray and a 15-year-old boy at a flat in Glasgow’s Springburn days after Christmas last year.
Lord Mulholland told them: “I have to say I have watched the most horrendous footage. You behaved like savages.”
On Tuesday, McClymont pleaded guilty at Glasgow Sheriff Court to assaulting the nurse and a male police officer.
He also admitted behaving in a threatening or abusive manner towards officers.
He was sentenced to 18 months in jail by Sheriff Iain Fleming, which will run concurrently with his current jail term.
The court heard he was taken to the hospital on an unrelated matter and was being observed by the nurse.
McClymont demanded illegal drugs before stating he was “going to go tonto”.
Prosecutor Mark Allan said: “He jumped towards [the nurse] and struck her to the body with his shoulder.
“He forced her into a corner of the treatment cubicle at the accident and emergency.”
McClymont was taken to the police van where he continued to shout and make threats.
Mr Allan said: “At one point he struck the walls of the cell area with his head and was repeatedly spitting.
“He tried to bite [the police officer] on the arm while he was trying to calm and remove him.”
Leon Kendol, defending, told the court: “Mr McClymont is embarrassed and remorseful for his conduct.”
