A FLINTSHIRE teenager "lost the plot" and attacked police with a laundry basket as they tried to find her partner, a court heard.

Chelsea Fekete, of Radnor Close in Queensferry, appeared at Wrexham Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

The 19-year-old had previously been convicted of a number of offences - including assault of an emergency worker, obstructing police, criminal damage and common assault.

Rhian Jackson, prosecuting, told the court that on June 21 last year the complainant William Sansom, the father of her then partner Jordan Sansom, went to visit their son in the Flint area.

As he approached the property Fekete came running out, screaming and shouting abuse.

She tried to open the door of the car and kicked the vehicle, denting it.

Damages worth an estimated £672 were caused to the car.

On December 27, police attended Fekete's home to arrest her partner, but she refused to let them in to carry out the arrest.

When they tried to force entry, she put her back to the door and then tried to barricade it with a mattress.

A negotiator was called but she repeatedly refused entry and refused to engage.

More than two hours later, entry was gained and she was arrested for obstruction.

Then on January 15, officers returned to her home again on the suspicion that her partner was there - in breach of his bail conditions.

Entry was forced into the property and Fekete appeared at the top of the stairs.

She was asked to put clothes on, but refused to do so, choosing instead to scream at officers: "Move, before my head goes."

Fekete picked up a washing basket with trainers, clothing and household objects in it and threw it down the stairs at the officer, whom it hit.

The defendant was told she was under arrest but continued to shout and scream.

When she was being led down the stairs in handcuffs, she told an officer "I'll f****** pull you down" and launched herself forward with such force that she pulled the officer downstairs. But the officer overpowered her and pulled her back up.

Simon Simmons, defending, heard from District Judge Gwyn Jones that he had received a report on Fekete's background - opting to limit his submissions to the court.

The District Judge told Fekete: "There have been a significant number of issues in your life whereby you might not have had the best of starts.

"You may have found friendships with others who may not have had your best interests at heart, who unfortunately treated you appallingly badly.

"Despite that you still wanted to try and do everything to assist those persons.

"You've done that at a significant cost to yourself.

"Things worsened - when PC [Daniel] Reilly was trying to do his best for you and protect you, you lost the plot.

"You were unable to look at things objectively and regulate your emotions."

For the offences, the District Judge handed down a total sentence of 26 weeks detention in a young offenders institute, but suspended it for a year.

He imposed 30 days of rehabilitation activity and 175 hours of unpaid work.

Fekete was ordered to pay compensation of £250 to PC Reilly and £250 compensation to William Sansom, as well as £85 costs.

District Judge Jones also imposed a three year restraining order prohibiting her from approaching or contacting William Sansom or his partner.
