Woman kicked police officer outside Carlisle pub

A woman who assaulted a police officer outside a Carlisle pub has been ordered to do 60 hours of unpaid work.

Sallyann Elliott, 48, of Harraby, Carlisle, was arrested after she kicked an officer on the shin in the city’s Botchergate.

Carlisle magistrates heard how police were called to the Cumberland Inn following reports of disorderly behaviour by a woman in the pub. When officers arrived they found Elliott outside the premises. She swore at them and kicked the officer.

Elliott, of Edgehill Road, admitted the assault, which happened on the evening of December 21.

Sara Budniak, defending, said Elliott had suffered a family bereavement and had only gone out for a drink as it was Christmas.

She added: “She doesn’t normally go out drinking and she was not eating much since her sad loss.”

Magistrates imposed a community order of one year with 60 hours of unpaid work.
