A KIDWELLY woman who was angry about drink prices was arrested after she began shouting at police officers.

Carys Evans, aged 25, of Clos yr Onnen, had argued with staff at a bar in Swansea's Wind Street about the price of a round of drinks.

She then took her complaint to a police officer outside but then began shouting and swearing at her.

Prosecutor Lisa Jones told city magistrates: "Officers tried to take hold of her arm in the process of arresting her and she unleashed what's described as a torrent of abuse against the officer."

She told PC Daniela Calzavacca she would "have her job".

She could not be cautioned by officers because she was too violent.

When she arrived at the police station, she continued to be abusive to officers.

Simon Howell, for Evans, said she had been out with family to celebrate the arrival of a cousin from Australia.

"She accepted she had consumed more alcohol than was good for her," he said.

"She became frustrated at the response of the officers and she accepts, in the cold light of day, it was probably down to the alcohol consumed.

"She wished to apologise for her conduct."

Magistrates made Evans, who admitted a public order offence, subject to a 12-month conditional discharge and told her to pay £85 in costs. She was also told to pay a £15 victim surcharge.
