Drunken charity shop worker dialled 999

(this is what you can drag out of a Manchester nightclub? :shudders: )


A drunken charity shop worker rang 999 for an ambulance - because she was only wearing a 'little cardigan' and felt cold.

Elizabeth Adams, 46, had been drinking lager and vodka before making the call in the early hours of the morning from outside a Manchester nightclub.

An ambulance duly turned up and she was then taken to hospital. When staff told her there was nothing wrong with her, she became abusive and screamed racist remarks at staff.

She finally agreed she did not need treatment but shouted: 'I am cold and I want to see a doctor.'

Adams, from Wythenshawe, then refused several times to leave the A&E department at Wythenshawe Hospital.

Police were then called and she was escorted out of the hospital.

Outside, she turned her anger on one of the police officers, punching him twice in the chest.

Adams said after the hearing: 'I was cold and shivering - I was only wearing a little cardigan - so I rang for the ambulance.

'In hindsight, it was wrong to do what I did, but I'm trying to forget about it. I just lashed out at the officer - I didn't mean it and it was only because of the drink.'

Adams pleaded guilty to charges of racially aggravated threatening behaviour and police assault when she appeared before Manchester magistrates on April 21.

District Judge Paul Richardson branded her behaviour ‘appalling’ and gave her a two-month jail term, suspended for a year.

He said: 'You shouldn't have been at the hospital in the first place. You weren't sick - you were drunk. You made a nuisance of yourself in the most unpleasant manner.'

Tess Kenyon, prosecuting, said Adams had refused to leave the A&E department, which was short-staffed and busy.

A spokesman for the ambulance service said she wasted the time of paramedics during the March 7 incident and could have put somebody else's life in danger.

'Paramedics are highly trained professionals whose skills and time are valuable to those in need,' he said.

'While an ambulance is attending to someone that doesn’t need medical help, it is unable to get to someone with a real threat to life.'

A hospital spokesman said: 'We have a policy of zero-tolerance towards aggressive and racist behaviour, and we will pursue any action to bring about prosecution against anyone who acts abusively towards any member of its staff.'

Martin Cunningham, defending, said his client had problems in her life and was ‘crying out for help.’

He said: 'She is very sorry for the police assault and has shown genuine contrition.'

Adams was also ordered to pay £100 compensation to the officer and £85 costs.

The court heard how she had appeared in court for a similar incident in 2007 when she racially abused three Asian women at Manchester Royal Infirmary.

After that hearing, Adams had denied she was a racist and said she was sorry for her actions.

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.
