Former North Wales Police officer bit parents in drunken rage
A former police officer, who turned to drink after discovering a decomposed body, has been sentenced for attacking her parents in a drunken rage.
Elliw Jones, 27, of Llanwnda, slapped her mother and then bit both of her parents.
Caernarfon Magistrates' Court heard she left North Wales Police after suffering post-traumatic stress disorder.
Jones pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly and common assault and was sentenced to 100 hours of unpaid work.
She was also ordered to complete a 12-month community order.
Prosecutor Angharad Mullarkey said police were called to a hotel in north Wales on May 9 after Jones was drunk and causing a nuisance.
The court heard officers were then contacted on 25 May after Jones slapped her mother and bit both of her parents.
Magistrates were also told she was convicted of drink-driving in January 2017.
The court heard Jones was going into rehab.
Liz Jones, defending, said the defendant had been badly affected since discovering a dead body while working covering Caernarfon and Blaenau Ffestiniog.
As well as a community order and unpaid work, Jones will also have to pay £225 in costs.
The court heard police want Jones to be given a criminal behaviour order - which can prohibits offenders from certain activities or places.
That application will be contested next month.
