A woman was arrested after punching a door security officer in the face outside the resort’s Chaos bar.

Jennifer Sutton, 32, of St Chads Road, South Shore, pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly.

Her source of destruction in the past has been her addiction to alcohol

She was given a 12 months conditional discharge, fined £40 and ordered to pay £50 costs plus £15 victims’ surcharge by Blackpool magistrates.

Prosecutor, Jim Mowbray, said patrolling police in Queen Street were flagged down and told Sutton had punched a doorman on January 13.

When arrested Sutton, who was drunk, pulled away and had to be taken to the ground.

The doorman did not make a formal complaint as he had not suffered any injury. At the time of the offence Sutton was on a community order imposed by magistrates.

Brett Chappell, defending, said his client had a number of similarly convictions.

He said: “Her source of destruction in the past has been her addiction to alcohol. There has now been a decrease in her drinking and she is on the right path to combating her addiction.”
