AN Ely teenager was "shocked" when she sobered up in a police cell and was told she had assaulted a police officer and two other people over the course of a drunken evening.
Abigail Foulds, 18, of Lynn Road, has been banned from a raft of city pubs for her behaviour on February 15, which began when she threw an ashtray on the floor at The Hereward in Market Street, Ely.
She had drunk three bottles of wine, and was warned that she would be asked to leave if she did it again by assistant manager Aaron Derby.
Foulds was abusive and threw the ashtray on the floor again, and pushed Mr Derby's chest and put her hand over his throat after he warned her a second time. Prosecuting, Matthew Bradbury said: "The next thing that happened was that Miss Foulds threw a bottle of roll-on deodorant into the pub."

Landlord Anthony Love saw the bottle come through the door and went outside to see Foulds shouting at his wife. The teenager began swinging for Mr Love with her arms when he tried to speak with her and he was struck on his head.
Mr Love said he was forced to restrain her, by which time the police had arrived.

When Pc Bramley told Foulds she would be arrested she said: "Like I give a f**k," before she kicked him in the right inner thigh.
Foulds was arrested and was given time to sober up in the cells, but did not remember the events when she was interviewed later; CCTV footage did not jog her memory and she said she was shocked by what she saw.
"I am totally disgraced with myself," Foulds told Ely Magistrates' Court last month, when she pleaded guilty to three assaults and being drunk and disorderly.
"I just feel totally stupid and now I know that drinking is not the best thing for me to do - I'm sorry."
On Tuesday Foulds was given a nine-month exclusion order from all Ely pubs in the Pubwatch scheme - including The Hereward - and was given 120 hours of unpaid work in the community. She was also given a 12-month conditional discharge.
