A WOMAN found herself in the dock due to her behaviour towards police in the street while "highly intoxicated."

Rebecca Jones, of Albert Place in High Street, Connah's Quay, appeared at Wrexham Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old admitted that on March 11, she used threatening or abusive words or behaviour in Wrexham.

Prosecutor Justin Espie told the court that on the day of the offence, police were called out to an incident involving the defendant.

The Leader:

She was "highly intoxicated," swearing and shouting in the street.

Jones behaved in an aggressive manner towards the officers and would not listen to advice.

Ultimately, she was arrested, Mr Espie said.

Ceri Lewis, defending, told the court her client had been "told to go away" by officers, but simply hadn't.

At the time she felt the officers were blocking her path, Ms Lewis said, but has since accepted her behaviour was not acceptable.

"She wishes to apologise to all concerned," she explained.

"She is a binge drinker and on the day she'd been with her friend, drinking.


"There was a verbal altercation between her friend and the friend's landlord.

"It escalated into this incident on the street."

Ms Lewis said her client is already subject to a community order and asked the court to consider imposing a conditional discharge to run alongside it.

Deputy District Judge Lee Davies agreed, handing down a six month conditional discharge.

He also ordered Jones to pay £85 costs, as well as a £26 victim surcharge.
