A DRUNK woman kicked a police officer in the testicles and told him to “f*** off” after being threatened with arrest.
Scarlett Wild, 29, threw a punch at the cop but missed and fell over.
Manchester Crown Court heard that Wild had initially called police to Ashton New Road, Manchester on February 16 claiming she had been assaulted by “number of men”.
Officers were met by Wild and her partner, and offered to drive them home.
But Wild later became aggressive with her partner during the journey, prompting police to put her in the cage in the back of the van.
Her partner left to diffuse the situation but Wild continued to shout, screaming at officers to “f*** off”.
Police warned Wild she could be arrested and she attempted to escape – but slipped and fell over on wet grass.
'I WILL SPIT AT YOU'
Despite offering to help her up, Wild kicked one officer in the groin and spat at him, Manchester Evening News reports.
Prosecutor Alexandra Sutton told the court: “She realised her partner had left and began to scream and swear, she told them to 'f*** off' and called them 'c***'.
“When the officers told her she would be arrested, she said 'I don’t care, f*** off'.
“She then appeared to throw a punch before attempting to make off, but slipped on the wet grass.
“As the officer attempted to help her up, she kicked out at him and hit him in the leg and testicles.
“She then spat at him and the spit landed on his leg. He told her to stop or she would be arrested and she said: 'f*** off, I will spit at you’.”
Wild, of Chorlton, previously pleaded guilty to assaulting an emergency worker and being drunk on disorderly – on the basis that she was “intoxicated”, “distressed” and accepted intention to spit at the officer on a reckless basis.
She was sentenced to a 12-month community order and 100 hours of unpaid work – and ordered to pay £600 court costs.
Defence lawyer Ellen Shaw said that Wild’s behaviour was caused by her drunken state, but that she “has taken steps to make sure that person doesn’t come to the forefront”.
She added that Wild’s grandmother had passed away during the pandemic, and Wild had contracted coronavirus as a result of being in hospital.
'VILE AND INEXCUSABLE'
Judge Patrick QC said: “You pleaded guilty to an offence of an assault on a police constable – and emergency worker – who was in the exercise of his duty and going beyond his duty to offer to help you and take you home.
"And what you did after he offered to take you home and out of a difficult situation was you drunkenly and violently abused him and assaulted him through a punch and kicking him painfully and spitting at him.
"This was a vile and inexcusable thing to do in any circumstances.”
He added: “Your behaviour, in the words of the pre-sentence report, was deplorable and unacceptable.
“It bodes well for your rehabilitation and for the future because now you know that when in drink you are a very different and unpleasant person indeed.”
A tearful Wild, of Maitland Avenue, told the judge: “You won’t see me again.”
She has two previous convictions for two offences, including assault of an emergency worker in 2014.
