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.
