A pregnant Carmarthen woman, suffering from stress, took a rolling pin to the town's police station and smashed up a police vehicle with it, a court heard.Did she have a problem with the cops?
Well, no, it seems not:
When interviewed Havard fully admitted the offence.*boggle*
She told officers she was at home and, due to a build-up of frustration, she grabbed a rolling pin and went to the police station. She didn't want to damage any other person's vehicle, she said.
"It was something I needed to do and I did it," she added.
Defending Kate Williams said: "This is a very unusual and a very sad case."Wouldn’t the mental health authorities be a better bet? There must be some deep-seated issues with the police to make her so hell-bent on targeting them…
She added: "It is totally out of character."
She said single mother Havard was five months pregnant with her second child at the time of the offence.
"She was struggling to cope with the pregnancy and suffering quite extreme hormonal fluctuations. She was in the house and everything got on top of her. Why she dealt with it in this particular way she cannot tell."
Ms Williams said Havard, described as "an intelligent and articulate young lady" was now receiving help from her midwives.
