A 38-year-old woman attacked police officers who arrested her for noisily celebrating the life of her late mother, Bradford Crown Court heard.

Lithuanian Ausra Zilguziene was drinking to mark the anniversary of her mother’s death when police were called to her home in Mayfair, Little Horton, Bradford, on the afternoon of January 25.

She insulted two women police officers and was handcuffed to be transported to the police station.

On the way, she yelled rude remarks at the officers, bit one on the finger and kicked out at the other.

Zilguziene pleaded guilty at Bradford and Keighley Magistrates’ Court to two offences of resisting a police officer.

Her case was sent to the Crown Court for sentence.

Yesterday, her solicitor Ray Singh said she had a degree in forestry in Lithuania and was looking for work in the Bradford area.

Mr Singh said Zilguziene had come to Bradford to be close to family and friends.

She was celebrating her mother’s life on the first anniversary of her death when the police were called to her home.

Judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC conditionally discharged Zilguziene for 12 months and ordered her to pay £200 compensation to each police officer.

He told her: “You must never behave like this again or you may have to go to prison.”
