He claimed he had taken ecstasy tablets.
The ambulance crew decided to take him to the Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital but, during the journey, Ross grabbed one of the paramedics on his arm and was abusive while he was inside the ambulance.
He punched out at the inside of the ambulance, causing no damage, and was not violent to paramedics but the crew decided they could not take him any further.
Ross told the court: "I ended up drinking again but I am seeking the right help."
Father-of-three Ross was given a six-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £85 costs and a Government- imposed £15 victims' surcharge.
