A WOMAN turned up at the home of another woman at 8.30am because she thought her boyfriend had spent the night there.

Blackburn magistrates heard Donna Dadge was kicking the door and trying to get into the property when the householder and her boyfriend refused to talk to her.

Dadge, 50, of Hawk Street, Burnley, pleaded guilty to using threatening behaviour and assaulting an emergency worker, a police officer. She was made subject to a community order for 12 months with 20 days rehabilitation activity requirement, fined £15 and ordered to pay £95 victim surcharge.

Gillian Kennaugh, prosecuting, said when police arrived at the address in Burnley they saw Dadge ran off, trying to discard her distinctive white coat at the same time.

When she was detained and spoken to Dadge became abusive. She told the officers. "I'm going to do them in. I'm going to smash all her windows."

"In view of those comments the officers decided to arrest the defendant at which point she lashed out with her fist, catching an officer on his stab vest," said Ms Kennaugh.

Gareth Price, defending, said his client had only one previous conviction and that was back in 1997.

He said events had been building, culminating in the incident on Saturday morning.

"Her partner went out on Friday night and didn't come home," said Mr Price.

"She discovered he had gone to this address and believed he was there with this other woman. She wanted to speak to her boyfriend but he refused to respond."

Mr Price said as a result of the offences his client had already spent 48 hours in custody.
