A WOMAN who tried to bite a pub doorman then did the same thing to the police officer who arrested her.

Natasha Bowles, 31, wrapped her teeth around door supervisor John Wilson’s arm at The Two Brothers pub, in Chartwell Green, West End.

After she left the pub she tried to bite and kick police.

Southampton Magistrates’ Court heard that Bowles had been out drinking with five others at the family pub on December 20 when she spotted someone she did not get on with.

Prosecutor Daniel O’Neill said: “The group left but Bowles did not and Mr Wilson, who was on duty, realised that there might be an issue.

“She tried to get at the woman but [Mr Wilson] got hold of Bowles.

“He asked Bowles to move but she refused to and she ended up in a crouched position on the floor.

“She then put her teeth on Mr Wilson’s arm.

“He said she had to move out of the pub because he wanted to reduce the risk for other patrons.”

The court heard that Bowles continued to refuse to move until she was eventually brought out by a friend who carried her over his shoulder.

Mr O’Neill added: “Police came to the pub but saw Bowles in a car outside a nearby Tesco.

“She refused to co-operate with them.

“One of the officers said Bowles then tried to bite them.

“They tried to move her away from the area but as they did she kicked PC Paul Brown.”

Mitigating, Steve Tricker said petrol station cashier Bowles was extremely embarrassed by her actions.

Bowles, of Wellow Close, Southampton, pleaded guilty to assault and assaulting a constable in the execution of his duty.

She was given a 12-month community order, which includes the requirement to carry out 150 hours of unpaid work.

Bowles was also told to pay £50 compensation to each victim as well as £85 costs and £85 victim surcharge.
