Blackburn magistrates heard witnesses said Rebecca Ford was ‘cowering in fear’ as her partner, Carl Daniel Raynor, shouted abuse at her.
Police called at 6.30am found Raynor frothing at the mouth, and had to use a Taser to subdue him before he could be arrested.Love’s young dream, they are not.
Catherine Allan, prosecuting, said Raynor and the aggrieved had to be taken to hospital after the incident as a result of their drug taking.
“It seems they both get into psychotic states when they have taken drugs,” said Miss Allan.That’s right. Both.
Andrew Church-Taylor, defending, said Raynor had previously been diagnosed as having acute psychosis and had been sectioned under the Mental Health Act in the past.
He said on the night of the incident they had both been taking amphetamine and were staying at her mother’s house in Accrington.So I guess, were this couple to live in Essex, she'd be classed as one of those 'vulnerable domestic violence victims' that Essex Police Farce is accused of 'failing'?
