Wrexham woman spat at pregnant pub manager


Staff reporter (Leader Live)

A WOMAN who spat at the pregnant assistant manager of a pub has been jailed.

Kathleen Marie Price, 29, pleaded guilty to a charge of assault when she appeared at Wrexham Magistrates Court.

The incident happened at the Cross Foxes in Abbott Street, Wrexham, in March.

A statement from Price’s victim, Gabrielle Dillon, was read out to the court.

The assistant manager said the incident had left her feeling shaken. She was used to banter with customers but Price had gone too far and she was concerned for her safety.

District Judge Gwyn Jones heard Price, of Cefndre, Wrexham, was already the subject of a 12-week suspended sentence following a breach of a conditional discharge.

Mr Jones told her he would be failing in his duty if he did not activate the sentence.

Mr Jones added a further four weeks for the assault at the Cross Foxes making a total of 16 weeks all together.

In addition Price is banned from licensed premises throughout the county of Wrexham for two years.

“You became offensive and abusive. Bar staff have a difficult enough job without people causing problems. They should not have to tolerate such behaviour,” Mr Jones said.

Matthew Ellis, prosecuting, said Price had been with a group of friends at the Cross Foxes on the afternoon of March 26 and they were becoming rowdy.

They were asked to keep the noise down and an argument developed in which Price spat at Miss Dillon.

Ceri Evans, defending, said Price had a number of issues in her life.

Miss Evans said Price was working hard to bring constructive changes to her lifestyle and was making good progress.
