A woman who had self-harmed was taken to hospital where she abused staff and police officers.

Michelle Marie Treanor, 43, of Uplands Drive, Grantham, admitted being drunk and disorderly in a public place on February 11.

Prosecuting, Paul Wood said that police officers were called to Treanor’s address that evening.

Two paramedics had been called out after Treanor had been drinking and had harmed herself.

Mr Wood said she was unable to stand up because she had been drinking strong cider and she was in an emotional state.

She said she would cut her wrists again if they left.

Treanor was taken to A&E at Grantham hospital and left with staff.

At 11pm police officers were called back to the hospital because Treanor had been swearing and had refused to be treated.

She was abusive to the officers and was arrested.

Treanor, who was not represented, told the court she had not been drinking for 12 days.

She said: “I have had a lot of personal problems which I am getting help for.

“I am sorry. I blacked out and I cannot remember any of it.”

Magistrates imposed a conditional discharge for 12 months.

They also ordered Treanor to pay costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £15.
