A woman, who behaved aggressively and used force against two police officers, was sentenced to six months in jail on Tuesday.



According to public prosecution records, the 32-year-old Tajik woman was drunk when she kicked a policewoman, grabbed her hand by force and insulted her.

She also threatened to slay a police lieutenant.

The woman, who is in Dubai on a visit visa, fiercely resisted a woman cop as she did not want to be handcuffed and taken inside the police station. A case was registered on September 8 at Jebel Ali police station.

The Court of First Instance found the defendant guilty of assaulting, verbally abusing, and threatening on-duty police officers and consuming alcohol without a licence and ordered her deportation after completing her jail term.

A policeman said he was on patrolling duty at 9am when he was informed about a problem outside a residential building in Jebel Ali. “When I reached the place, the security guard told me the woman – the defendant – had arrived and was behaving erratically. She wanted to get inside even though she was not a resident.”

The officer told the prosecutor the woman looked drunk and was shouting.

“She said she wanted to go inside the building to drink liquor. I told her it is a residential building and it does not have any place that serves alcohol. The woman would not listen as she was not sober. She would not leave either but was creating trouble.”

The police sent a woman cop who took the accused in a patrol car.

“Outside the police station, another policewoman came out and as she was about to take her into custody, the defendant started to insult her and the police officers. She also poured water on her and on a police lieutenant,” the witness said.

A policewoman said she was assigned by the on-duty lieutenant to take the defendant out of the police car and get her inside the detention.



“She was in a mess and heavily drunk. She was yelling hysterically and kept falling down. I was trying to help her stand up in vain. She asked for water then spit it from her mouth towards us. She would not let me handcuff her and take her inside. She used offensive language against us.”
