A 22-YEAR-OLD woman kicked and headbutted police officers after she was arrested for causing a disturbance in Mablethorpe High Street.

Kirsty Martine Rope of Sutton Road, Trusthorpe, admitted assaulting PC Beverley Horan by beating her, assaulting PC Paul Copley and a public order offence when she appeared before magistrates at Skegness.

Edward Johnson, prosecuting, said that at 2.50am on August 26, Rope was seen on CCTV struggling and punching a man, who turned out to be her partner.

Police attended and detained her. She was intoxicated, struggled violently and kicked PC Copley in the groin.

She also repeatedly swore at and was abusive to the police officers.

The officers had to lift her into their vehicle and she again kicked PC Copley in the groin.

As she continued to struggle, the officers had to use leg restraints on her.

PC Beverley Horan was with her in the rear of the police vehicle and Rope pulled the officer's hair back and headbutted her, causing significant bruising and swelling above her left eye.

Rope had to be restrained all the way to the police station and she continually swore at and abused the officers and was extremely aggressive, Mr Johnson said.

When Rope was interviewed later, she said she had no memory of the events after going out with her partner for the evening.

The magistrates ordered a report from the Probation Service and adjourned the case for a week.

Rope was granted unconditional bail.
