A TEEN girl warned against swearing on the GWH children’s ward by police was arrested when she asked “so I can’t say f***ing, f***ing, f***ing, f***ing?”

And the 15-year-old Calne girl, who cannot be named because she is under 18, bit two of the officers helping her to Gablecross police station.

Swindon Youth Court heard the girl was at the Swindon hospital on November 17 last year. She was very drunk and began verbally abusing NHS staff, who called police.

Officers warned her against her behaviour and she was discharged. On the way out of the hospital she said she wanted to kill herself, prompting staff to put her in a side room in the paediatrics department.

The girl turned her tongue on the police officers who were with her. She was given three chances to stop swearing. Rather than comply with the demand, the girl said: “Oh what, so I can’t say ‘f***ing, f***ing, f***ing, f***ing?’”

Police took her outside, where she lay on the floor apparently unresponsive. That led to another trip to the hospital to get her checked over.

Kate Prince, prosecuting, said she was deemed fit and put into a police van at which point she sunk her teeth into one of the officers’ legs causing pain but no lasting damage.

Back at Gablecross police station she lashed out again, biting a different officer on the right hand.

Magistrates heard that two months before the trouble at the hospital, police had been forced to arrest the girl in Sainsbury’s in Calne after she started swearing at officers and members of the public in the car park.

She was warned swearing in a public place was a crime, to which she replied: “I don’t f***ing care.”

On the way to Melksham police station the girl kicked one of the officers in the car with her. The vehicle had been travelling at 60mph.

The girl pleaded guilty to a public order offence and three counts of assaulting an emergency worker.

Mark Glendenning, defending, said the offences were committed when she was drunk and were a direct response to having been held by a man.

“She is clearly a young lady who has some issues and difficulties,” he said. Social services, the youth offending team and her parents were aware of her problems: “They are doing all they can to try and address and help her.”

Magistrates made a 12 month youth rehabilitation order. Gail Chilcott, chairman of the bench, said: “Police officers don’t expect to be attacked when they are doing their duties especially as in most cases they were trying to help you.”

Her parents must pay the £85 court costs and a £21 victim surcharge.
