Bill LaHive, for Clarkson, said she had "considerable difficulties" with an autistic disorder and other mental health difficulties.
He added she had seen a psychiatrist and had also been to the Harbour drink and drugs counselling service.Oh, poor lamb! Oh, the 'difficulties' she has!
Angela Furniss, for the Crown Prosecution Service, said police were called to the hostel because Clarkson was repeatedly striking and damaging the front windows. She added she had been told she could no longer stay and appeared to be under the influence of drink or drugs.
Mrs Furniss said police tried to restrain her and Clarkson hit PC Brown twice to the face, though he was not left with any visible injury. Mrs Furniss said Clarkson then bit PC Taylor on the hand in the back of the ambulance on the way to hospital. The court heard her skin was broken.
She added that in the second incident, Mr Hall had heard a "commotion" outside his home and saw Clarkson pushing and pulling another person. He told her to calm down and she head-butted him to the face, cutting his lip.Presumably she's now been locked up, so no-one else has to put up with her 'difficulties'?
Magistrates bailed her for a report to be prepared ahead of sentencing on January 30.*sighs*
