A MUM bit a paramedic and headbutted a police officer in a drunken rage, a court heard.

Marion Simms, 45, admitted three assaults in Droitwich and Worcester, despite not remembering committing the offences.

None of the three victims suffered serious injuries.

Peter Love, prosecuting, said: “Ambulance staff were called to her home at 11.45pm on Saturday, September 16 due to reports that Miss Simms was having problems breathing. She was taken to hospital under the Mental Capacity Act, such was her level of intoxication.

“She was put into an ambulance to go to the hospital (Worcestershire Royal Hospital). Whilst the ambulance was in motion, she reached forward and bit paramedic (Myles) Brady on the left arm. He then tried to assist her, and she tried to bite his right arm.

“When she was taken to hospital she was being assisted by police officer PC (Warren) Edmonds. She kicked PC Edmonds on his right arm and right leg before kicking him a few more times on his leg. When she was being taken to A&E later she tried to break away from PC (Alice) Jeffrey and then headbutted PC Jeffrey in the face, causing a minor swelling to her lip.

“She was interviewed the next day and did not remember the ambulance arriving or assaulting the paramedic and police officers.”

She was charged with two counts of assaulting a constable in execution of his/her duty and one count of assault by beating.

Chris Hilton, representing Simms at Worcester Magistrates Court on Thursday, said: “She pleaded guilty at the first opportunity and she was ashamed of her actions, she cannot believe that it happened.

“This is out of character and she asked to be able to write letters of apology to the police officers and paramedic involved. She sent the two police officers letters by email and asked the ambulance service to pass on her apologies to paramedic Brady.

“She is a German national who has never really settled here. She was divorced five years ago and is staying in the country for her two children from her previous marriage.

“She suffers from depression and when she feels down she does not always turn to drink, she normally goes to the gym. But it was under refurbishment at this particular time.”

Simms, of Saxon Way in Wychbold, was given a community order for 12 months including 15 rehabilitation days, fined £333, ordered to pay £50 of compensation to each of the victims, a victim surcharge of £85 and costs of £135.
