A WOMAN attacked police officers and abused paramedics.

Victoria Scott kicked out twice at the officers, hitting one in the right thigh.

A court heard the Washington woman became upset after medics tried to get her to hospital.

Scott, of Waterloo Walk in Sulgrave, pleaded guilty to assaulting a police officer on March 24.

It was the third time she had appeared in court for assaulting a police officer and was already subject to a conditional discharge for assault.

Stan Sudworth, prosecuting, said the ambulance crew called out police after the 28-year-old became aggressive.

He said: “She was arrested for breaching the peace and when resisting, she kicked out at the Pc, kicking him on the right thigh.

“She also kicked backwards towards the officer, kicking him on the right shin.”

Gerry Scott, defending, said Scott became “overwhelmed” and lashed out.

He added: “She had already called the police after an incident with her then partner. The paramedics were then trying to persuade her to go to hospital, but she did not want to.

“She simply wanted to lock the door and be on her own. She became overwhelmed by having six people in her front room.”
He added that Scott accepted the first kick had been deliberate, but not the second.

The court heard she had now split up with her partner and was hoping to move back to the Sunderland area.

District Judge Roger Elsey stood the case down until May 7 for probation reports to be prepared.
