Female drunk in threats incident at a supermarket
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.”
