Wife lashed out after allegation
A WIFE lashed out at police when they arrived at the family home following an allegation of assault made against her husband.
The allegation was unfounded and no further action was taken - but upon initially coming into the home in Burry Port, the wife Chloe Hogan Davies was abusive to police.
The 39-year-old, from Pencoed Road, pleaded guilty to a charge of obstructing a police constable in the execution of their duty when she appeared at Llanelli Magistrates Court.
Prosecutor Linda Baker said the offence took place in the early hours of June 16 after Davies and her husband returned home following a night out.
Mrs Baker added: “At 1.40am police were called to the home address of the defendant after an allegation of assault against her husband (had been made by another person).
“The defendant told police they were not arresting her husband and she became aggressive pushing one of the officers and calling him a ‘bald c***’. Her husband tried to calm her down and police told her that if she continued to obstruct police she would be arrested, to which she replied, “I’d love to.”
She was then arrested by police.
Defence solicitor Stephen Lloyd, on behalf of Davies, said: “On this night she and her husband, who was on leave from the armed forces, went out for the night.”
The court heard that a call had been received by police relating to an allegation of assault by the husband by another party.
Mr Stephens said the allegation was unfounded and no police action was taken against the husband and that it had not been the first time such a call had been made to police - again an unfounded allegation.
He added: “The police who attended were not from Burry Port, had they been they would have known the circumstances and background that this allegation had been made before and there was no truth in it, absolute nonsense.
“In trying to explain the situation to the police my client went over the top and obstructed the officer in their duty. Officers were acting properly and acting upon a call they received.”
Magistrates fined Davies £200 for the obstruction offence, ordered her to pay court costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £30.
