Community service for woman who punched PC

A Douglas woman has been ordered to carry out 200 hours of community service after attacking a police officer and a glass collector in the same night.

31-year-old Caroline Diane Kelly, of Urley Path, lashed out at both men on June 10 th .

She later admitted being drunk and disorderly, assaulting a police officer and displaying disorderly behaviour on licensed premises.

At Douglas Courthouse on Tuesday Kelly’s advocate told the court she had "no recollection" of events due to her level of intoxication adding: "She’s disgusted with herself."

The court had previously heard how Kelly had become involved in an altercation with the 18-year-old nightclub worker at The Outback on Barrack Street.

When police attempted to arrest her she struck one officer - the force causing his helmet to fly across the street and leaving him with a swollen eye.

Passing sentence Deputy High Bailiff Jayne Hughes told Kelly: "I accept you’re ashamed for your behaviour - this does appear to be a one off incident."

Kelly was also ordered to pay £250 in compensation and the same in prosecution costs and banned from entering on-licensed premises for six months.
