Mum threatened daughter's partner's life, punched police officer
A WOMAN who punched a police officer after she threatened to kill her daughter's boyfriend faced Rockhampton Magistrate's Court yesterday.
The court heard on November 13, 2016 Robyn Leanne Richards shouted 'get the f**k out of here I'm going to f*****g kill you' outside an East St residence at 1.40am.
Police arrived to find her highly intoxicated among a group of 10 people.
When they restrained her, she punched the officer in the right upper thigh.
She was charged with public nuisance and obstructing a police officer in the line of duty.
Richards' defence told the court the behaviour was "very unusual and very out of character”.
A conviction was recorded and under the Safe Night Out legislation, the woman was sentenced to a mandatory 40 hours unpaid community service for each offence.
