Drunk woman from Montrose spat at police and threw IRA bomb threats
Police officers were attacked and spat on by a drunken woman who claimed she had drunk her drink at a party in Arbroath.
Paige Sharp claimed to be infected with Covid-19 and threatened to place bombs under officers’ cars.
The 27-year-old is now facing jail for her “disgusting” conduct in Arbroath last summer.
Dundee Sheriff Court heard that police were called in the early hours of the morning after reports that Sharp was behaving in an abusive manner due to his drunkenness.
Prosecutor Marie Irvine said: “The accused pushed an officer on the chest and went wild.
“She grabbed a torch and tried to handle their PPE.
“She was handcuffed and placed in the back of the police van, but was always violent.
“The defendants made threats against the police and their families, using phrases such as ‘slit their throats’ and ‘have them raped’.”
Sharp claimed his father was a member of the Irish Republican Army and that he would arrange for bombs to be placed under their cars and in their homes.
She threatened to attack police officers with her handcuffs before spitting in the back of the van and claiming to have Covid-19.
After arriving at police headquarters in Dundee, officers opened the van to find Sharp undressed and threatening to throw a soiled sanitary napkin at them.
The drink was “doped”
Sharp, of Hill Place, Montrose, then spat directly into an officer’s face as they struggled with her.
Appearing via a video link from HMP Edinburgh, Sharp admitted to assaulting PC Victoria Fraser by pushing and lashing out on her body.
During the drive to the police headquarters and during her stay, she shouted, swore, kicked the door of the police van, uttered threats of physical and sexual violence and threatened to plant bombs under the windows. cars and their homes.
Sharp also said she had Covid-19 while repeatedly coughing and spitting inside the police van, exposed her breasts and private parts and threatened to assault them with a soiled sanitary napkin.
She also admitted to repeatedly kicking PC Gary Benson in the groin. Sharp has repeatedly stated that she has Covid-19 at PC Fraser, Martin Masson and Stephen Adam, before repeatedly trying to spit on them and bite them.
The thug spat in PC Masson’s face.
She was absolutely appalled at what people were saying had happened.
Lawyer Scott Norrie
Attorney Scott Norrie said members of Sharp’s family feared his drink was spiked by a man after Sharp rejected his sexual advances.
He said: “There is a suggestion that having looked quite normal there was a sudden change and there was concern that his drink might have been spiked.
“I have no verification on this. Afterwards, the situation gets out of hand and she remembers little or no incidents with the police.
“She was absolutely appalled at what people were saying had happened.”
Sheriff Alastair Carmichael has postponed Sharp’s sentence until later this month for reports to be prepared. She was released on bail.
