A RHOS teenager assaulted two police officers following a music festival, a court heard.

Lauren Jade Darlington, aged 19 and of Gardden Road, appeared before magistrates in Wrexham yesterday.

She admitted being drunk and disorderly and assaulting two police officers at Hall Street in Rhos on August 18.

Darlington also admitted possessing cocaine, which the court heard was discovered during a search at Wrexham Police station.

Prosecutor Justin Espie told the court that on the day of the offences, North Wales Police had received a call from elderly residents in Hall Street reporting a female knocking on doors.

Officers attended the scene and found Darlington, who was described as being 'clearly drunk' and abusive.

When the officers attempted to handcuff her she punched one to the face and pushed another over.

She was subsequently arrested and taken to North Wales Police eastern divisional headquarters at Bodhyfryd, Wrexham, where she was found to be in possession of the cocaine.

Ceri Lewis, defending, told the court Darlington, who works full time as an industrial cleaner, has shown remorse since the incident.

She added: "She had been to the Rock the Park festival and she has no recollection of how she ended up in Rhos early in the morning.

"During interview she gave a full and frank admission and she was extremely remorseful.

"She said she was ashamed to hear how she acted with the officers and she wants to apologise to them personally.

"She has not been to any social functions since this offence and she is very wary of her alcohol intake."

The court heard Darlington also had 'no recollection' of where the cocaine came from.

Steven Vale, chair of the magistrates, ordered Darlington to pay a total of £765.

That comprises a £150 fine each for the offences of acting drunk and disorderly as well as the two assaults, a £100 compensation payment to each of the officers involved, court costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £30.

An order for the forfeiture and destruction of the cocaine was also made, but Darlington received no separate penalty in relation to it.

Mr Vale told Darlington: "It is a very serious thing to do, to assault a police officer.

"It is not right that an officer has to get that type of abuse."
