A TEEN previously told by magistrates she was on her final warning has swerved a spell in custody.

A week after her last court appearance, Delicia Wheeler, who despite being just 18 has more than 25 previous convictions, was back before Swindon JPs charged with being drunk and disorderly and assaulting an emergency worker.

The woman, of Magnolia Court, Pinehurst, admitted lobbing a plastic drinks bottle at a police constable and being drunk and disorderly on Tovey Road on May 10.

Prosecuting, Graham Dono said Wheeler had threatened to “kick off”. It was said the teen had thrown a full bottle at the constable, hitting her on the back of the arm and leaving bruising and redness.

However, Wheeler denied that the bottle was full – or that it had caused the bruising on the officer’s arm.

Magistrates adjourned the case for a Newton hearing to establish the facts in the case.

She was bailed to appear in court on August 1. Chairman of the bench Amanda Lee said: “It needs to be stressed, Miss Wheeler, that this is getting out of hand. I’m pretty confident the more you keep coming back to court, this is not going to get any better.”
