A WOMAN has appeared in court after falling down drunk in Huddersfield Bus Station.
Kirsty Dell, of no fixed address, was before Kirklees magistrates yesterday.
She admitted being drunk and disorderly in the Upperhead Row station on July 29.
Dell, who appeared in custody, also admitted a charge of failing to surrender to court previously.
Alex Bozman, prosecuting, said that the bus station incident happened at around 2pm.
He said that police responded to a report of a female having locked herself in the toilets.
Mr Bozman said: “She was escorted out by the officers who tried to make enquiries as to whether family and friends could assist her.
“The defendant became obstructive and started shouting and swearing.”
Magistrates were told that the 34-year-old’s antics were witnessed by members of the public.
Mr Bozman said: “She was arrested after she had thrown herself to the floor and refused to get up.”
Magistrates were told that Dell had already been handed three convictions for drunk and disorderly behaviour this year.
The bench was told that she had a problem with alcohol. Dell also suffered from panic attacks. As a result she had failed to attend court previously after being unable to find the building.
She received a conditional discharge for six months. For failing to attend court she was sentenced to a day’s detention already served.
No costs were imposed due to her limited means.
