Woman bit police officer on the knee
2:00pm Saturday 8th September 2012 in News
A WOMAN who had been drinking lager all day lashed out at her partner and a policeman because she was petrified of losing her children, a court was told.
Samantha Green, aged 29, of Goodwin Gardens, Evesham, had been at a wedding at a local snooker club with her partner Kyle Price and her children on Thursday, August 16.
Mark Johnson, prosecuting at Worcester Magistrates Court , said that as they walked home along Port Street, Green, who was carrying one of the children, kicked Mr Price five times while he was pushing the pushchair.
There was then an argument and one witness saw Green punch Mr Price in the eye with a clenched fist.
Mr Johnson said police were called to Green’s home but when they tried to arrest her, she started shouting and said: “No, you are not taking me away from my baby”.
She struggled as police tried to restrain her, kicking out, screaming and biting an officer on the inside of his left knee.
Mr Johnson said Green could not remember anything after leaving the snooker club.
Oliver Nicholas, defending, said Green was appalled by her actions.
He said she had been taken into care as a child and as a result, suffered quite badly when she was away from her children.
He said Green, who is now separated from Mr Price, was remorseful and had already started counselling.
Green admitted assault, assaulting a police officer and obstructing a police officer and was released on conditional bail until she is sentenced on Monday, September 17.
