A WOMAN hurled abuse at police while drunk on a South Tyneside street.
Two officers, called to Whitehead Street in South Shields on Monday, November 11, found Kimberley Cuerden in a drunken state, arguing with Police Community Support Officers at the scene.
When police approached her, she shouted abuse at them and was arrested.
John McGlone, prosecuting, said: “Her eyes were glazed, her breath smelt strongly of alcohol and she was unsteady on her feet.
“She was still shouting aggressively when police approached her and was arrested for being drunk and disorderly.”
The 24-year-old was found guilty of being drunk and disorderly in a public place in her absence, after she failed to attend court on December 17.
Cuerden, of John Street in Wallsend, North Tyneside, was handed a six-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £15.
