Drunk woman who was allegedly assaulted then ‘took anger out on’ five police officers including biting one on shoulder

Ballymena Court

A DRUNK woman who was allegedly assaulted later took her “anger and frustration” out on police and assaulted five officers including biting one on the shoulder.

Charlotte Pond (30), of Drumtara in Ballymena, admitted five charges of assault on police and a disorderly behaviour charge relating to Drumtara on September 15 last year.

A prosecutor said police had already been to an address earlier and when they returned Pond came to the door and when she was asked to leave she began “shouting and screaming” in the street.

She assaulted officers including scratching another officer on the face.

Defence barrister Stephen Law told Ballymena Magistrates Court on Thursday the defendant wished to apologise for the “disgraceful activity”.

He said the defendant had been the victim of an assault that evening and later decided to “turn her anger and frustration” against officers.

He said the defendant had previously worked in a charity shop.

District Judge Nigel Broderick said the behaviour on the date in question had been “totally unacceptable”.

Pond was ordered to do 200 hours of Community Service.
