A WOMAN has been fined for kicking a police constable.

Sonia Fry admitted assaulting female officer, PC Fleming, and being drunk and disorderly in The Cornmarket.

At Worcester Magistrates Court, Leslie Ashton, prosecuting, said police saw the 45-year-old being aggressive and striking out at passer-bys in the early hours of January 28.

“Police were so concerned about her behaviour they felt it necessary to intervene,” said Ms Ashton.

She was arrested after officers noticed she smelt of alcohol and she refused to calm down.

The court heard officers, who noticed she smelt strongly of alcohol, tried to calm her down telling her to go home. But she carried on, so was arrested.

At Worcester police station, Fry, of Vesta Tilley Court, Worcester, was aggressive to staff.

Officers believed she was hiding something so took her to the cells and asked her to remove her clothes.

She refused and swore at officers, before PC Fleming and another officer held her arms to get her to the ground.

Magistrates were told Fry pushed the officer and kicked her leg, knocking her to the floor.

Chris Aggrey, defending, said Fry, of Vesta Tilley Court, was drunk and extremely emotional, and was remorseful for what had happened.

He said PC Fleming had suffered no visible injures and stressed Fry was not wearing shoes when she kicked the officer.

Magistrates fined Fry £193 for the assault and £128 for being drunk and disorderly.

She was also ordered to pay compensation of £50, a victim surcharge of £30, and costs of £135.

These were added to existing fines and Fry now owes a total of £1,496.
