A troubled woman who was found screaming in the street that she wanted to be locked up has been fined for being drunk and disorderly in public.

Chesterfield magistrates’ court heard this month how Stacey Adelaide Hollingworth, 31, of Hambleton Avenue, North Wingfield, was discovered shouting near her home by police with two bottles of lager.

Prosecuting solicitor Peter Bettany said: “Police were called out to a fight at Hambleton Avenue, North Wingfield, and this lady was found holding two bottles of lager and she was shouting and screaming about how she needed to be locked up.

“She said she had lost her home and she needed locking up before she did any harm.”

Hollingworth pleaded guilty to being drunk and disordely in a public after the incident on July 6.

Magistrates fined Hollingworth £73 and ordered her to pay £85 costs and a £20 victim surcharge.
