The 27-year-old also admitted repeatedly kicking PC Robbie Milne on the leg.
Meldrum had been at Industry nightclub and repeatedly abused officers dealing with an incident at around 2am.
Sheriff Tom Hughes ordered him to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work as well as placing him on supervision for two years.
