THE pros­e­cu­tion may be try­ing to put the bite on her but so­cialite Shari-Lea Han­cock clearly isn’t let­ting it get her down.

She hammed it up for the cam­eras yes­ter­day as she left Down­ing Cen­tre Court af­ter the ad­journ­ment of a hear­ing into al­le­ga­tions she bit a po­lice of­fi­cer.

The one-time mis­tress of late bil­lion­aire card­board king Richard Pratt hap­pily waved and smiled af­ter pro­ceed­ings came to a close. The 48-year-old is charged with re­sist­ing ar­rest, as­sault­ing an of­fi­cer and com­mon as­sault af­ter she al­legedly bit the leg of a po­lice of­fi­cer fol­low­ing a 2016 lunch in Wool­lahra with other so­cialites, in­clud­ing Lizzie But­trose.
