A WOMAN who punched a police officer and left scratch marks down his face told a court she had bought her victim a box of chocolates to apologise.

A WOMAN who punched a police officer and left scratch marks down his face told a court she had bought her victim a box of chocolates to apologise.

Kylie Fisk is today enjoying her liberty after a judge opted against sending the 20-year-old to jail and described the gift as a “sweet gesture”.

South East Suffolk Magistrates' Court heard how police had been called to a disturbance in Forfar Close, Ipswich after reports of a brawl involving Fisk, her mother, another woman and her brother.

At the time, emergency services reported that up to 30 people were involved in the October 18 clash.

No one was seriously hurt although paramedics treated some of those involved for minor injuries.

Robert Barnwell, prosecuting, said it was just after midnight when Fisk kicked the police car and swore and screamed at officers in “a highly agitated state”.

He said: “She punches a police officer in the lip with her right hand and scratches his face leaving five deep scratch marks.”

Fisk, of Forfar Close, pleaded guilty to assaulting Pc Alistair Livingstone.

Ian Duckworth, mitigating, told the court Fisk was an Otley College student with special needs.

He said: “She has bought the officer a box of chocolates.”

District judge David Cooper replied: “That is a very sweet gesture, I have never heard of that happening before.”

Mr Cooper told Fisk: “You have committed a very serious offence, it must never happen again or you will go to prison.

“I have to consider compensation. You bought the police officer a box of chocolates, that is nice. You just go and give him that.”

Fisk was also placed on a 10pm to 7am curfew for two months.

Fisk said: “I'm so sorry.

“I know it was wrong, I will never do it again.”
