A TEENAGER who drunkenly attacked a police officer after a night out with her family in Warrington town centre has walked free from court.

Chelsea Henley, from Birchwood, played dead in the street while being tackled by officers after kicking a patrol car.

Warrington Magistrates Court heard on Monday, June 20, that the 18-year-old approached the vehicle and booted it at around 2.15am on May 29 this year.

She then fell to the floor, where say lay with her eyes closed.

One PC attempted to wake her up, but she only did so once informed that she was going to be arrested.

And officer then ordered Henley to leave the area, but the McDonald’s worker reacted by pushing him with both hands to the chest in front of her relatives.

She was then wrestled to the floor and detained but attempted kick out while being placed into the back of a police car, and was later taken to the cells to sober up.

The defendant, of Curlew Grove, admitted assaulting an emergency services worker and drunk and disorderly behaviour.

Warrington Guardian:

Henley was fined £140 and told to pay £85 in court costs plus a £34 victim surcharge.
