Truro woman threatened to rip police officer's head off
A WOMAN who drunkenly told a police officer she would rip his head off in Truro city centre has been given a chance to sort her life out.
Katie-Marie Mesley, 25, of no fixed abode, appeared at Truro Magistrates’ Court on Thursday charged with being drunk and disorderly at Green Street bus station on July 25.
Mesley admitted the offence, which the court heard occurred after she had been refused service at Tesco supermarket.
Alison May, for the CPS, said police officers had been called to the food store but she and her partner had left by the time they arrived.

She said: “Officers found them in the bus stop in Green Street.
“Initially she was calm and answered the officers questions saying that she was very drunk.”
But as the conversation went on Ms May said Mesley became “extremely volatile” because she was concerned that her partner would be arrested.
“She went to an officer and said ‘I’ll ******* rip his head off’,” said Ms May.
The court heard that Mesley had previous convictions for shoplifting and being drunk and disorderly and that she was had the chance to go into a rehabilitation programme at Boswyns, near Hayle, next week.
Magistrates handed Mesley, who represented herself in court, a conditional discharge for 12 months, saying: “We are giving you another chance to go on these courses and sort your life out.”
Mesley was also ordered to pay £100 in prosecution costs and a victim surcharge.
