A mum-of-three headbutted a woman and minutes later sent her a threatening message, Lincoln Magistrates' Court heard.And….why?
Shelly Hubbard, 27, of Halton Close, Lincoln, carried out the assault after seeing the victim, who had previously dated Hubbard's sister's boyfriend, in Wahoo bar in Silver Street, Lincoln.This is, I think, one of those stories I might need to draw a diagram to follow…
Defence solicitor Bill Miller said: "She accepts that she headbutted the complainant after being slapped by her. She accepts that her reaction was over the top and she is ashamed by her behaviour and offers her apologies to the victim."Well, of course she does, She’s in the dock!
Magistrate Geoffrey Gowland said: "You're well aware by now the seriousness of assault and the court deems them most seriously.Oh, magistrate, you tease! Of course it’ll be as lenient…
"Quite a lot of them go to custody. You have got three children and you have got to think what the consequences would be if you go to custody. You have got to stop letting your feelings get away from you.
"You need to think twice before you act as another appearance in court might not be so lenient."
She was sentenced to a 12-month community order with a 12-month supervision order attached and ordered to attend a ten-day drink awareness course.And if the name and/or picture sounds familiar, well…
She was also given a curfew order for three months, banning her from going out on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday night, and ordered to pay £150 compensation.

The three tiny tearaways have been accused of verbally abusing adult residents and damaging property.
But mother Shelly Hubbard, 24, claims her children are physically incapable of the crimes they have been accused of.
Mrs Hubbard, of Lincoln, said: 'I couldn't believe what I was hearing. They were accusing my tiny son of being an instigator of anti-social behaviour. It's ridiculous.As is the very notion that he can expect his mother to be a good role model…
'When he's out playing in the park he's preoccupied with his sister's push chair and children's book In the Night Garden. He's the furthest you get from a hell-raiser.
'He does kick a football but it's tiny and plastic and blows back to him in the wind. The very notion of him being able to kick a proper football over a 7ft fence is laughable.'
