Mother of seven who assaults police gets $1000 fine

A MOTHER of seven who assaulted police after a drug-buy gone wrong and ended up in a padded cell has been fined $1000 in Hervey Bay Magistrates Court.

Sharon Marie Louise Wilson, 37, pleaded guilty to assaulting and obstructing police, damaging police property and public nuisance.

Wilson came to the attention of police on April 27 when officers attended a disturbance outside a unit on St Andrews Dr, Pialba.

Police prosecutor Senior Constable Jeanette Grigoris told the court Wilson was screaming obscenities and banging on the door of the apartment.

Snr Const Grigoris said Wilson told the officers she was trying to get into the apartment because she had paid the people inside for drugs, which they failed to provide.

"I just came here to get a hit," Wilson told the officers.

The court heard Wilson was arrested for public nuisance, at which point she resisted violently.

Back at the watch house, Wilson was given a blanket for warmth, but proceeded to tear it into strips and wrap it around her neck, Snr Const Grigoris said.

A male officer tried to stop her, only to have his hands slapped away.

Then a female officer tried and was pushed away forcefully, Snr Const Grigoris said.

Eventually, Wilson was placed in a padded cell for her own protection, as she was threatening to kill herself, the court heard.

Wilson told the court she wanted to get the sentence over and done with so she could go to Sydney to be with her seven children.

Magistrate Graeme Tatnell fined her $1000.
