Drunk woman poos on bus then urinates in police van and tries to fight officers
A 40-year-old woman who pooed on a bus seat and tried to fight police as they arrested her has been fined £200.
Grace Lawton Chimango pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly at York Magistrates' Court on February 9 after she was caught defecting on a bus seat on Halloween.
Police were called to Easingwold following reports of a drunk woman causing issues outside The George Hotel.
CCTV footage found Chimango had pooed on the bus seat and when officers tried to arrest her, she threatened to fight them.
She also tried to kick her way out of a holding cell, YorkshireLive reports, and even urinated on a police van.
Chimango was released under investigation at the time of the offence but was re-arrested on drunk and disorderly charges again on January 14 2021.
The court heard she displayed the same behaviour as back in October and again urinated in the police van.
Her solicitor, Lee-Anne Robins-Hicks, said Chimango’s husband is in need of a triple heart bypass which has led her to drink.
She also suffers from a series of mental health problems including schizophrenia, anxiety, a personality disorder and PTSD, Ms Robin-Hicks said.
The solicitor also said Chimango suffers from urinary problems and claimed all of her conditions are aggravated when she drinks.
Ms Robin-Hicks said: "She is a lady with a lot on her plate.
"She loses her good character as a result and she explained to police she was ashamed of her actions."

Lawton Chimango, who has no previous convictions, was fined £200 and ordered to pay £193.21 to bus operator Reliance and £25 to North Yorkshire Police by way of compensation.
District judge Adrian Lower said she gave "credit" to Chimango for the fact she pleaded guilty to all offences but added that "choosing to drink" is her own fault.
Sentencing her, Judge Lower said: "I give you credit for the fact that you pleaded guilty to all the offences.
"You choosing to drink is your fault. You lost control of your behaviour and became a nuisance. Your behaviour was absolutely disgraceful."
