A Matlock woman arrested following a boozy bust-up with her sister struck a police officer on the head.
Police were called by both women - each making complaints against the other - Chesterfield magistrates heard.
Officers attended Laura Wild’s home in Church Street, Matlock, at 5.40pm on July 25 and found them both the worse for drink.
Neither made a formal complaint but Melissa Wild refused to leave the address and police believed there was a risk of a further breach of the peace.
Jenny Fitzgerald, prosecuting, said Wild “became violent and lashed out”.
She had to be taken to the floor and restraints fitted to her legs.
“She was taken to Buxton police station where she said she would hang herself using whatever she had, so her clothes were removed.
“She began struggling with officers again and broke free from one of them which enabled her to strike a female officer to the head with her left hand.
“She injured herself by headbutting the floor,” said Mrs Fitzgerald.
Melissa Wild later said in interview she had drunk a lot of cider before the incident and could only remember turning up at her sister’s home.
“She said she usually got violent when drunk and apologised for hitting the officer,” added Mrs Fitzgerald.
Wild, 29, of Lynholmes Road, Matlock, admitted assaulting PC Tammy Chapman and resisting arrest.
She was given a one-year conditional discharge and must pay £50 compensation to PC Chapman, with £85 costs.
Lisa Tinsley, for Wild, said it was a single blow that caused no lasting injury.
She added: “There are mental health difficulties.”
