A FLINTSHIRE woman found herself in court after an early morning argument with a neighbour resulted in police being called.

Carol Bryan, of Allt Y Plas in Pentre Halkyn, appeared at Mold Magistrates Court on Thursday.

The 45-year-old admitted that on September 10 at Pentre Halkyn, she used threatening or abusive words of behaviour.

Rhian Jackson, prosecuting, told the court that at around 3.45am on the day of the offence, police were called out to an incident involving the defendant and a neighbour.

Officers arrived at Bryan's address to find her standing in her front garden, shouting and swearing.

She was asked numerous times to stop, but persisted - hurling abuse towards her neighbour, resulting in her arrest.

Gary Harvey, defending, made limited submissions to the court - explaining his client "had a drink" and had music too loud.

That led to the neighbour taking exception and the subsequent altercation seen by the police.

He conceded Bryan's record of previous convictions and the language used "doesn't help her" but said she wished to apologise for her conduct.

The court handed down a one year conditional discharge, with Chair of the Bench Deborah McKinnel warning her she will find herself back before the court should she re-offend.

Bryan must also pay £85 costs and a £26 victim surcharge.
