A WREXHAM woman has been fined for her behaviour outside a city-centre pub.

Zara Thomas, of Y Wern, appeared at Wrexham Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

The 34-year-old admitted that on December 2, she used threatening or abusive words or behaviour in Chester Street, Wrexham.

Prosecutor Justin Espie told the court that at around 8.30pm on the day of the offence, Thomas was outside the Long Pull Pub when she became involved in an altercation.

The incident, which was captured on CCTV, saw her lashing and kicking out at door staff.

She had to be taken to the ground and restrained until police arrived.

Emma Simoes, defending, told the court: "She is a lady of previous good character who is incredibly ashamed and remorseful.


"She has mental health issues including anxiety and depression.

"On this day, she acted completely out of control and makes no excuses for it.

"When she saw the CCTV she was incredibly embarrassed and didn't want to see it any further.

"This is the first time she appears before the court and I very much doubt you will see her again."

Deputy District Judge Paul Conlon told the defendant: "You have lost your good character through the commission of this offence.

"Public order offences are always treated seriously because of the impact they can have on the people in the vicinity - but it appears to have been fairly short-lived."

Thomas received a £140 fine and was ordered to pay a £56 victim surcharge, as well as £85 costs.
