A DRUNK woman demanded a lift home from strangers then spat at them for refusing.
Abbie Dawn Dodd, of High Street, Rhosymedre, admitted two counts of assault against Amy Prince and Shannon Booth, who had been driving through Wrexham town centre while she was on a night out.
The attack left Miss Booth feeling ‘absolutely disgusted’.
In a statement read out at Wrexham Magistrates Court she said: “To think a human being would spit at another makes me feel physically sick.” Miss Prince said she felt angry at first but then scared and intimidated.
District Judge Andrew Shaw told Dodd: “Both victims were in a vulnerable position in a car with no way to get away.
“You were drunk and assaulted them in a rather disgusting way.”
The victim’s car was caught up in a traffic jam in Town Hill as Dodd, 23, came out of a bar.
She opened the back door of the car and offered the driver, Miss Prince, £20 if she gave her a lift.
The pair ignored Dodd who shut the door and the car drove off.
Matthew Ellis, prosecuting, said: “Miss Prince then became trapped in traffic on Abbot Street and was approached by the same female who spoke to Miss Booth.
“She then spat at them through the open window. Miss Prince saw people gathering around the back of the car so she got out to see what was happening. She got abuse from a few females and then Miss Prince was spat at again by the defendant.”
The traffic started moving again so the victims were able to drive to safety.
Ceri Evans, defending, agreed spitting was a disgusting thing to have done and Dodd, a cook at a pub in Johnstown, herself called it disgusting. Miss Evans said: “This is most uncharacteristic of her. Last year was difficult for her as she went through a family bereavement and started drinking a lot. It all came to a head around the time of the incident in August. Since then she’s tried to stay away from going out and drinking.”
Dodd was given a two-month community order with a curfew between 10pm and 7am and ordered to pay £50 compensation each to Miss Booth and Miss Prince as well as £85 court costs.
