Fe­male drunk in threats in­ci­dent at a su­per­mar­ket

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - News -

A woman who as­saulted an of­fi­cer at Coat­bridge po­lice of­fice and threat­ened to kill oth­ers has been given a re­stric­tion of lib­erty or­der.

Karen Blair, 30, was ar­rested for be­ing in a heav­ily in­tox­i­cated state out­side a su­per­mar­ket last month.

She was taken to Coat­bridge po­lice of­fice where she kicked a fe­male of­fi­cer and mocked her ac­cent.

Blair was given a two-month re­stric­tion of lib­erty or­der which will run con­sec­u­tively to a three-month sen­tence of the same na­ture which was given for a sep­a­rate charge.

Out­lin­ing the in­ci­dent that took place on Au­gust 8, the procu­ra­tor fis­cal told the court:“It was around 4pm and uni­formed po­lice of­fi­cers were on pa­trol be­cause of an­other in­ci­dent.

“The ac­cused was ly­ing on grass at the side of a foot­path, shout­ing and swear­ing.

“They found her to be in­tox­i­cated but when they ap­proached her she shouted“f*** off ya p*****!”.

“They ad­vised her to calm down as chil­dren were nearby but she con­tin­ued act­ing ag­gres­sively and swear­ing, so she was ar­rested.

“A cell van was then called for and the ac­cused claimed,‘I’ve got a knife and I’ll f****** kill you’!”

The fis­cal con­tin­ued:“On arrival at Coat­bridge the ac­cused con­tin­ued to be ag­gres­sive and mocked an of­fi­cer’s ac­cent.

“She told her to‘get out of my coun­try’and asked‘why don’t you go and work in Eng­land’? “Dur­ing a search she kicked an of­fi­cer on the shin.” Blair, who had pleaded guilty to five charges, was or­dered to re­main un­der su­per­vi­sion for 12 months and also com­ply with a three-month com­mu­nity pay­back or­der which was given for sim­i­lar crimes.

She was ad­mon­ished on an­other mat­ter and given the op­por­tu­nity to be of good be­hav­iour on a shoplift­ing charge.

The Kil­syth res­i­dent will have to re­main in her home be­tween the hours of 7pm and 7am for five months.

Sher­iff Derek O’Car­roll told her:“If you breach your re­stric­tion of lib­erty or­der then you’ll go to prison.”
