Woman cops fine after assaulting police officer

A WOMAN who drunkenly yelled and swore at her mother's house and then hit a police officer in the face when being taken to the watch house has been fined.

Police were called to a disturbance at a Bundamba address where they found Dawn Ellina Florence Fisher, 36, yelling abuse through the front door.

Ipswich Magistrates Court was told Fisher was unsteady on her feet and smelled of liquor. When police approached her she began swearing at them.

She was charged with public drunkenness and police took her home. However, when she refused to get her key out of her bag to go inside the house police took her to the watch house to sleep the alcohol off.

On the way she kept yelling abuse at a female officer and hit her in the face with an open hand.

Magistrate Virginia Sturgess said it was "simply unacceptable" for Fisher to hit police.

She said Fisher could not "blame the drink" for her actions when she was intoxicated and fined her $750.
