A drunken woman who held a lockdown bash bit a policewoman and repeatedly kicked another officer who arrived to break up the party.
Unemployed mother-of-two Maria White, of Hull, became aggressive and threatening when police turned up to shut down her lockdown-breaching gathering.
The 27-year-old angrily bit the constable so hard on her arm it broke her skin and began bleeding, a court heard.
White also threatened to set her dog on the officers and to find out where they lived so she could send round some heavies to “sort them out”.
The violence flared after police were called to complaints about loud noise from the party, a court heard.
White admitted assaulting two female police officers and one male officer on March 13, according to Hull Live.
Pardeep Dhinsa, prosecuting, told Hull Magistrates police were called to White’s home at 12.15am after reports of loud music.
Curtains were twitched and the music was switched off so the police left.
But there was another report of loud music at 2am and they returned. They knocked on the front door and White appeared at the living room window, closed it and would not allow the officers in.
She swore and put a finger up and appeared to be drunk as police tried to get in through a back door, the court heard.
White tried to refuse them entry and police attempted to stop her from closing the door.
“The incident took a rather nasty and volatile turn,” said Mr Dhinsa.
White threatened to set her dog on the officers and repeatedly shouted at the dogs to bite them, he continued.
White raised her hands and pushed the male officer in the neck and head area.
She was arrested but struggled and bit down hard on the arm of a female officer, causing a “nasty” bite mark, breaking the skin and bleeding, despite it being through clothes.
Police tried to control White but she continued being aggressive and kicked out five times at the shin of the other female constable.
“While being arrested, she made numerous threats towards the officers, including threats to find out their home addresses,” said Mr Dhinsa.
She threatened to send other people to their homes to “sort them out”.
The female officer who was bitten branded White’s “aggressive and threatening” actions “completely disgusting”.
She said she was repeatedly and intentionally kicked.
“I feel that this was very unnecessary,” she said. “She wanted to hurt us deliberately just so she could have a house party.
“This has left me feeling distressed and upset. I feel that this will stick with me for a long time.”
The male constable branded the incident “utterly disgusting” and said: “I was simply doing my job as a police officer” trying to enforce Covid restrictions.
White had a previous conviction in 2018 for a driving matter.
Joe Painter, mitigating, said that White apologised for what happened during the “nasty” confrontation and deeply regretted her behaviour.
“She has very little recollection of this entire incident. It’s completely out of character.
“She is truly ashamed and disgusted with her actions towards the police officers.
“Clearly, there has been an issue with alcohol and it was a big problem in this case.”
White sought help for her drink problem soon afterwards, the court heard.
She had children aged nine and five and was on Universal Credit.
The presiding magistrate told White it was a “truly, truly serious case” and she had narrowly missed being sent to custody.
She said: “Officers should not have to attend incidents like this and should not be treated like that.”
White was handed a 16-week suspended prison sentence, a three-month 8pm to 7am curfew, and 15 days’ rehabilitation.
She was ordered to pay £250 compensation to the bitten officer and £100 to each of the two others.
