A DRUNK who got behind the wheel with a child in the back of the car has been banned from driving for two years.

Sarah Michalek, 31, of Cowleaze, admitted drink driving, failing to stop at the scene of a crash, assaulting three emergency workers, threatening behaviour and child neglect.

Michalek was driving a Vauxhall Astra on the evening of September 17 when she hit a parked car in Lydiard Millicent, before leaving the scene with a child who had been in the car at the time.

She was later arrested and taken to the Great Western Hospital where she assaulted two police officers by kicking them, and another officer by spitting in her face.

Michalek was ordered by JPs to pay £50 compensation to each officer.

Sgt Katharine Smith said: “Michalek’s actions on September 17 were unacceptable. To get behind the wheel of a car intoxicated is irresponsible and mindless. It is fortunate that nobody was seriously injured."
