A MOTHER from Nailsworth pleaded guilty to assaulting a police officer and a paramedic, despite drinking so much she could not remember doing it, a court heard.

Olga Baker, aged 35, of Highwood Court, Forest Green pleaded guilty to drunk and disorderly behaviour, assaulting a male paramedic, assaulting a female police officer in the execution of her duty and resisting the police officer in the execution of her duty.

Sharon Green, prosecuting at Stroud Magistrates' Court on Wednesday, explained that a police officer had her attention drawn to Baker on Tuesday, June 23 at about 3.15pm in the centre of Nailsworth, as she seemed to be having a fit.

"The officer called an ambulance and went to help Baker but she was highly intoxicated and very emotional," Ms Green said.

"After she had been put into the ambulance she got out and started to shout and swear.

"Following being arrested she spat in the officer's face.

"One of the paramedics stepped in to help and she punched him in the face.

"She was then put on her back on the ground and kicked her legs which made contact with the police officer who fell backwards onto the floor and grazed her arm and elbow."

Baker had to be put in leg restraints and was arrested after the police officer had to call for back up.

Ms Green revealed Baker had a previous conviction for a public order offence and had previously been in prison.

Defending Steve John said: "Baker cannot remember what happened, but she does not wish to contest any of the facts.

"Baker's personal circumstances are quite tragic."

"Eight years ago she found her partner, who had committed suicide.

"She then became addicted to heroin and crack cocaine and her son was taken into care.

"Baker does not usually drink but it was the anniversary of her partner's death and she was upset about her son.

"It is obvious she feels genuine remorse about what she did."

The case was adjourned for a pre-sentence report after magistrates said they could not rule out custody.

Baker will return to Stroud Magistrates' Court for sentencing on Wednesday, August 12.
