Blyth appeared at Teesside Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday and pleaded guilty to assaulting a police officer and possessing a controlled drug of class B.
Michael Embleton, prosecuting, told how police officers were called to an address for an unrelated incident and Blyth was arrested.
Blyth, of Longscar Walk, Hartlepool, was reportedly banging her head in the seating area on the way to the custody suite as well as making threats.
It was at Middlesbrough custody suite where she launched the attack on the female police officer.
The court heard how she told the officer she would ‘bite her nose off’ as well as making insulting remarks.
She pleaded guilty at Teesside Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, 4, January
The magistrates’ bench handed Blyth a £365 court bill, including a £200 fine for the possession of cannabis and was given a nine month conditional discharge for the offence of beating of an emergency worker
Then when the officer and Blyth were walking in the hallway of the custody suite she kicked back at the officer, making contact with her right leg.
The officer told how Blyth made ‘numerous threats’ and she was disgusted that she had been assaulted while on duty.
She also commented on the language used whilst Blyth was in police custody.
Mr Embleton told how Blyth has three convictions for four offences.
Lee Goodchild, mitigating, told how Blyth had a ‘pleasant evening with a friend’ and had consumed alcohol on a rare night out.
However, the night went down hill when the pair left the bar and Blyth left her handbag inside which ‘contained her entire life’.
The court heard how Blyth pleaded with door staff to let her back inside to retrieve her bag which contained her phone, card and £100 in cash.
However, she was not let back into the venue. Police were then called to the scene following the stand off as Blyth was causing a commotion.
Officers then handcuffed Blyth which sent her into an ’emotional spiral’.
Mr Goodchild stated, however, that she doesn’t accept that she made threats towards the officer.
The defence solicitor added that Blyth did ‘kick back’ at the officer but no injury was caused.
The magistrates’ bench handed Blyth a £365 court bill, including a £200 fine for the possession of cannabis.
Blyth was given a nine month conditional discharge for the offence of beating of an emergency worker.
