‘Drunk’ woman attacks police
What started as a report about an overdose turned out to be very different for two police officers when they were attacked by a woman in a drunken stupor.
The woman, Nathalie Felice, 26, from Cospicua, had moved back to her father’s house after experiencing marital problems. On Tuesday afternoon her family called the police thinking she had suffered an overdose.
Police sources said she then got into a fight with her sister and when the police arrived she attacked them too. The officers found that she had only been drinking, the sources said.
During her arraignment yesterday, Ms Felice pleaded guilty to attacking WPC Lisette Agius and PC Kenneth Vella Gregory, slightly injuring Ms Agius and damaging Mr Vella Gregory’s watch. She also admitted to disobeying orders.
Magistrate Anthony Vella jailed her for two years after taking into consideration her early admission.
Police Inspector Jesmond Borg prosecuted.
