A drunk mum who attacked police in her home when they were called to her home during a domestic fight has escaped a jail sentence.

Emma Noble tried to bite and punch two officers and kicked a third when they were called out to a disturbance at her property on Corporation Street, Mansfield.

The 32-year-old had admitted three counts of assault at Mansfield Magistrates’ Court during a previous hearing.

Her two children, aged four and five, were present during the heated argument with her partner and the attack on the officers, which left the youngsters ‘distraught’, the court was told.

Outlining the case, the Crown Prosecution Service, said the officers had been called to the address on the evening of July 14, to find Noble and her partner arguing.

Noble had a cut on her arm following an alleged assault by her partner, and was bleeding heavily.

The court was told how Noble became ‘hysterical’ when they arrested her partner, and tried to stop the police. After she refused to calm down, she was herself put under arrest.

It was then that kicked one officer in the leg, tried to punch the second but missed and tried to bite another.

During interview, Noble said she had been drunk and was ‘disgusted’ by her own actions.

Defending, Chris Perry, said his client was ‘living with regret’.

The magistrates considered a custodial sentence but decided on 12-month community order. She was also made to pay £405 in fines, costs and compensation.
