AN “obstructive” drunken mum had kicked a PC and bitten his arm at her home where he had been concerned about the welfare of two young children, a court heard on Friday.

Samantha Joanne Davies, 33, of Henllan Street, Denbigh, pleaded guilty to assaulting PC Huw Capper, causing actual bodily harm on July 6.

Prosecutor Diane Williams said the bite broke the skin and the officer had antibiotics and waited for blood test results.

She told magistrates at Llandudno the case should be committed for sentencing by a crown court judge and Davies had a previous record for violence.

Police body camera footage was shown to the court.

Mrs Williams said Davies’ partner hadn’t been in a fit state to look after the children and at one stage when he stood up in the house, the officer drew his Taser.

The partner sat down again.

Davies had been obstructive and was warned she would be arrested for being drunk in charge of a child, but had slapped the PC’s hand, kicked and bitten him.

However, defence solicitor Andrew Hutchinson suggested: “Maybe PC Capper could have dealt with the situation far better than he did.

"He’s pointing his fingers at her. He draws his Taser while she’s holding a ten months old child.”

Police had wanted someone else to look after the youngsters and the PC had no power to arrest the defendant for being drunk in charge of a child, the lawyer remarked.

But Davies had been handcuffed “quite forcibly” and she lashed out.

Mr Hutchinson said Davies was apologetic in interview.

“Had she not been arrested and handcuffed, would this have taken place?” the solicitor added.

The magistrates decided their sentencing powers were insufficient. She was bailed until sentencing at Mold crown court on September 12.
