NICOLA Sturgeon’s sister claims she was arrested over a domestic incident because her sibling is First Minister
Gill Sturgeon, 46, made the explosive comments today after she was nicked along with ex Steven Waite, 50 at his home last month.
Both were arrested and charged by Police Scotland, but prosecutors dropped the cases last week.
Gill, from Irvine, Ayrshire, also said Nicola had been her ‘rock’ during the trauma and she called her ‘day and night’ while steering the country through the pandemic.
In an interview with the Irvine Times, she said: “When I found out I was getting charged myself I was shocked.
“I was told the reason I was being charged was because it was high profile just because of who my sister is – they said that a few times – and had to watch what they were doing.
“I wasn’t treated very nice, one of them treated me like a criminal.
“I asked why I was being charged and was told ‘because you committed a crime’.”
Steven was arrested on August 7 at his home in nearby Kilwinning and mum-of-two Gill was lifted on an identical charge four days later.
The cases have since been dropped but remain live while both parties can ask for a review of the decision.
On Sunday, Gill shared a meme on her public Facebook page saying ’behind every big sister there’s an even crazier little sister that you don’t want to mess with’
She wrote: "…when wee sis is upset you don’t want to mess with big sister.
"Nicola has been my rock this last 3 weeks."Couldn’t have got through without her and all her help.
"She calls me day & night. Love her to bits."
She added: ”Everyone has been great and very supportive.
”I am relieved that my charges have been dropped – but also not relieved as I feel I didn’t do anything for them to be made in the first place.
“I will continue to work with and help others to have a voice and to watch for the red flags that I now know I was blinded to.”
Police Scotland declined to comment.
Last month, we told how Gill ditched her face mask on a train.
She sparked a furious backlash after sharing a selfie on Facebook without a covering as she travelled to Edinburgh to see pals.

Gill later claimed she only removed her mask on a train to munch a sandwich, insisting she did nothing wrong.
She wrote on Facebook: “I was on a train. Sitting down eating a sandwich. Took mask off for that. Nowhere near anyone.”
The First Minister’s spokesperson called it a “momentary lapse”.
Gill Sturgeon’s lawyer and the SNP did not respond to requests for comment.
