A pair of feral teens who terrorised a town centre have been placed under curfew after spitting and swearing at police who were trying to arrest them during a drunken rampage.

During a violent struggle Charlie Beaumont, who was 18 at the time, assaulted a policewoman and screamed "you fat c**t, you're a sl*g, I'm going to head-butt you", while her friend Jamie Leigh Perkins tried to bite the officers.

Despite their young age, the pair have lengthy criminal records for violence and were down for hanging around with other tearaways and causing trouble outside shops and businesses in Stockport, Greater Manchester.

Inquiries revealed both had been issued with Criminal Behaviour Orders (CBO) which barred them from their regular haunts and from associating with each other.

The incident occurred after the pair left a party together.

At Stockport Magistrates court, Beamount, now 19, and Perkins, who has recently turned 20, admitted assaulting police, breaching a CBO and being drunk and disorderly.

But they were spared prison after their lawyer said both had found themselves employment and stayed out of trouble since the incident in September last year.

They will each have to abide by eight week curfews which ban them from going out after dark.

Both were each sentenced to three months jail suspended for a year and were further ordered to pay a total of £400 damages to two of the officers involved in the arrest.

Sentencing, Justice of the Peace Neil Brettell told the girls: "Spitting at a police officer is absolutely disgusting and nobody should be put in that position.

"But in the intervening period you do appear to have proved yourselves, behaved like normal human beings and have grown up. Provided you behave and show a bit of maturity then you won't hear anything from us again.

"However you both have got to continue living your life to the high standards you have now set yourselves and prove that you wish to become part of the human race again and not be from a sub-culture who go round dragging their knuckles over the pavement.

"You must not behave like the disgusting humans you were previously. You should have a bright future ahead of you and life is surely much better when you don't have to come to court and listen to people moaning at you.

"But the court will no longer babysit you. You're supposed to be adults and need to behave like adults."

Earlier Catherine Allen, prosecuting, said in court: "Both were shouting loudly and waving arms around. Beaumont was crying, shouting and swearing and smelt of alcohol and was very drunk.

"The police officer said she tried to speak but she wouldn't engage and Beaumont then started to grab onto Perkins and they ended up rolling around in the bush. The officers separated them and Beaumont was placed in handcuffs.

"Whilst she was in the police van they learnt she was subject to a Criminal Behaviour Order and several residents approached the officers telling them the females had been causing problems."

She continued: "Beaumont then started to lash out and began banging her head on the side of the police van and shouting. She was arrested but whilst waiting to be placed into custody she said: "you fat c**t, you're a sl*g, I'm going to head-butt you."

"She then spat towards one officer and then at another. Perkins then said to one of the officers: "I'm going to kill myself," and started banging her head against a wall. She grabbed hold of his vest and body-worn camera and he had no choice but to take her to the ground.

"She was screaming and swearing and making threats and attempted to bite officers so he's had to hold her head on the side of the pavement to prevent her from biting.

"At that point, she spat at this officer and he was forced to restrain her on the floor and she continued to spit on the floor. She was shouting and was then arrested."

Perkins had 30 offences on her record including assault and unlawful wounding plus previous breaches of the Criminal Behaviour Order when she was caught loitering outside an Aldi supermarket.

Beaumont had 11 convictions for public order matters and assaults on police and breach of her CBO. Both were usually dealt with by youth rehabilitation or supervision orders.

In mitigation for the girls, defence lawyer Lisa Morton said: "Both these young women have now simply grown up.

"Charlie has got herself a full-time job and accommodation and passed her driving test.

"She is very positive about wanting to stay away from this kind of behaviour and is remorseful towards the officers. Jamie Leigh is now working at McDonald's and has been knuckling down.

"She tells me one of her passions is football and she has attained a position as a sports coach on a weekly basis.

"She has tried to turn her back on this and is trying to mature. Both of these girls have made some progress since this incident.”
