Alloa, Clackmannanshire – Andrew Burns is a male transgender serial offender with a string of convictions for vandalism, assaults and resisting arrest. The 26-year-old has the reputation of being “one of Scotland’s most dangerous prisoners.”
Burns has changed his name to Tiffany Scott, but will not be taking cross-sex hormones or undergoing transition surgery. He has demanded that female prison guards conduct his strip searches.
According to a prison source, Scott is known for filing dozens of complaints against staff over “crazy whims.” At one point, Scott demanded that staff call him “Mighty Almighty” or “Obi Wan Kenobi.” He sometimes refers to himself as “Mitzababy.”
Prison officials have made no comment on Scott’s behavior, but command staff to comply with Scott’s demands. Female prison staffers performed one strip-search on Scott before refusing and staging a protest.
Scott smeared excrement all over his prison cell in January 2017. It required 11 security and prison officers to get Scott under control in April 2017 after he began spitting at nurses. In January 2018, Scott slashed his cellmate across the face with a razor during a fight over a mirror, creating a wound that needed 18 stitches, caused numbness and possible nerve damage, and left permanent scarring.
Scott’s other violent antics as an inmate include biting open his own veins and spraying the blood at people, ripping up “tear-proof clothing,” and screaming expletives at a judge who refused to address him with female pronouns.
When Scott goes to court, he’s put under heavy security escort and the courtroom is locked down because of the “clear danger” he presents.
