A mum attacked another parent with her stiletto heel after turning up drunk at the school gates to collect her children, a court heard.Jobless Emma Harrington got involved in an argument with the man because he was in the toilet cubicle she wanted to use.
After verbally abusing her victim the 30 year-old took off her high heel shoe and launched herself at him. Pupils had to be ushered away as the row escalated into violence.
Prosecutor Giles Rowden said: “It appears the victim was in the toilets. She wanted to go in. When he comes out, there’s some form of verbal argument.” Harrington, who claims she could smell cannabis on the man, called him a “junkie” while he told her to “Go back to working in a lap-dancing club”.
Harrington pleaded guilty to assault by beating and criminal damage. She has been given a community order and told to pay £500 in compensation by magistrates.
