AN EDEN Valley woman whose drunken behaviour towards police was described as “volatile” and “quarrelsome” has vowed never to repeat the experience.

Becky Harrison, 27, behaved badly following an incident that involved the police at Salkeld Road in Penrith as she travelled home as a passenger in a car on February 3, Carlisle’s Rickergate court heard.

She admitted being drunk and disorderly.

The defendant, of Roods Place, Kirkoswald, was repeatedly swearing and “extremely irate” while police were attempting to arrange for her return home, magistrates heard.

The police officer who was dealing with her noted that her speed was slurred and her behaviour continued to be abusive despite repeated warnings.

He concluded Harrison was drunk.

In court, the defendant, who works as a supervisor for a popular supermarket chain, told magistrates: “I just had too much to drink. I should not have done it.

"It was a massive error of judgment and it’s never going to happen again.” She was fined £165, with £85 costs and a £66 victim surcharge.
