Litter picking too hard for me, says Cumbrian glamour model

A glamour model who drunkenly attacked two police officers is refusing to carry out community service because it is ‘too tiring’ for her.

Sophie Pearl Dalzell, 20, who is originally from Workington where she attacked the police officers, was ordered to carry out 400 hours of litter-picking after the 2012 assault.

Months later, she was hauled back to court for skipping probation meetings to get a second breast enlargement in Belgium.

It came after she refused to wear an electronic tag for a separate offence because it interfered with her adult TV work.

Now, with 180 hours of community work left to complete, Dalzell has declared she has ground to a halt because she “just can’t physically do it”.

Dalzell, who has 11 previous convictions, was handed the community order, a £1,000 fine, and put on a Thinking Skills course, in May last year. Despite completing more than half the sentence, it has now been seven months since Dalzell last picked litter – and she claims she intends to go away for summer to Ibiza.

“At the moment I am refusing to go because I hate everything about it,” she told The Sun.

“They make you work from 8am until 4pm. It’s a waste of a full day and it’s just too hard for me.

“I get paid a minimum of £500 for a photoshoot and the rest of the time I just chill out, so I don’t think the courts should be able to put me on community service because I find it too hard and tiring.”

Her words come a week after she avoided a penalty and potential prison sentence for skipping her probation meetings to get a breast enlargement – her second – in Brussels.

The court acquitted the model of her alleged breach after she produced a note from the surgeon.

The law states that defendants can miss a probation meeting but only for a valid reason and if proof, such as a letter from a doctor or employer, is given.

After being cleared at Manchester Magistrates’ Court, Dalzell said: “I’m just annoyed I have had to go through this when I haven’t done anything wrong.”

She was convicted last year after assaulting two police officers during a night out in Workington.

It was months after she was ordered to wear an electronic tag when found guilty of slapping a male driver in the face and kicking his car in a row outside a Manchester nightclub.

However, when security firm G4S turned up to fit her tag, she refused to let them put it on her ankle, claiming she would get the sack if she wore it.
