An unemployed mother of two shouted and swore at door staff and police in two separate incidents.

Kayleigh Ann Palmer, 27, of Westgate, Grantham, admitted being drunk and disorderly on March 16 and using threatening words or behaviour on March 20.

Prosecuting, Tracey Ross said the first incident happened outside Hotshots bar in Westgate at about 12.25am. Palmer was swearing at doorstaff and police told her to calm down, but she didn’t. She was then arrested for being drunk and disorderly.

Four days later, police were deployed to Market Place where there were reports of a fight. When they arrived they saw Palmer shouting and swearing at officers.

She was asked to watch her language but then swore at the officers again.

Palmer, who was not represented, told magistrates she had two children and no job, but had nothing to say about the offences.

Magistrates handed Palmer a conditional discharge for six months for both offences. She was also ordered to pays costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £15.
