A drunk woman was arrested for her safety and dignity after she tried to take her bra off in front of officers.

Cherish Phoebe Watts, formerly of Neyland, now of Castle Lake, Haverfordwest, pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly in a public place when she appeared at Haverfordwest magistrates court on Tuesday, January 22.

Vaughan Pritchard-Jones, prosecuting, said Watts, 26, was found staggering around Charles Street, Milford Haven, kicking cars just after 11pm on January 5.

“She had taken off her blouse and was in the process of taking her bra off.

“Police found her sitting on the pavement and tried to speak to her. She was clearly very drunk.”

Watts began rolling around the ground and dragged herself about on the pavement as she attempted to remove her bra.

Officers tried to get her to cover herself up as her behaviour attracted onlookers, and decided to take her away for her own safety and dignity.

Stuart John, defending, said he was of the view that Watts had a problem with alcohol, despite not drinking on a daily basis.

“She tends to drink to excess because she has issues that she needs to address from her past. When she gets in this state she can’t remember what she has done.

“She is in danger of causing herself or someone else physical harm.”

Magistrates imposed a 12-month conditional discharge and ordered Watts to pay £85 court costs and a £20 surcharge.

The chairman of the bench said: “I feel embarrassed for you. I really hope you can sort yourself out.”
