ONCE ‘BITTEN’ BUT NOT TWICE SHY
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.
