A woman who assaulted two nurses, a doctor, a paramedic and several police officers has been sent to prison for 22 months.
Bradford Crown Court heard how 30-year-old Bridget Mtola was intoxicated when she assaulted the emergency workers whilst hurling racist abuse at them between November 2020 and May this year.
Prosecutor David Ward said there were seven separate committals to the court for sentence covering a range of offences from threatening behaviour to being drunk and disorderly, and assaulting a doctor, nurses, police officers and a security guard.
The court also heard how Mtola had twice urinated in the back of two emergency ambulances, leading to them being taken out of service for deep cleaning.
Mtola had six previous convictions for 17 similar offences and has also been banned from Bradford Royal Infirmary.
Judge Ahmed Nadim labelled Mtola’s behaviour “disgraceful and shameful”.
Before sentencing, the court heard how Mtola had “spurned and rejected” previous attempts by the courts to help her.
“You are unable or unwilling to learn from non-custodial measures,” Judge Nadim told her.
Judge Nadim jailed Mtola for a total of 22 months. She was also handed a five-year Criminal Behaviour Order.
