Fashion designer bit cop and bizarrely told him ‘you’re dealing with a celebrity’
In footage shown to the court, the foul-mouthed Geneva bit Police constable Rakesh Phakey on the bicep.
Stunned, PC Phakey’s colleagues arrested Geneva and took her into custody.
Geneva was also required to pay £100 compensation to the victim, £510 prosecution costs and was handed a £200 fine.
She was previously spared a sentenced after slashing her previous husband eight times across the face in an attack that forced him to jump through a window to escape.
Addressing Geneva, Judge Tulk said: “You admitted the offence at the earliest opportunity at magistrates court on January 15 this year. The reason you appear before this court is that this offence was committed while under a suspended sentence order for two previous offences. Your plea put you in breach of that order.
“Officers attended your home address to deal with a domestic incident and they found you with your 14-week-old baby and your 14-year-old daughter was also in your house. From the time they arrived the police were trying very hard to diffuse the situation without arresting you.
“They were trying to persuade you to leave, or go to a hotel, or stay somewhere else. I think it is fair to say you had celebrated your birthday too fiercely and a copious amount of alcohol had been taken. If you had not drunk that alcohol, you would not have behaved the way you did.
“You left the officers with no alternative but to arrest you. We have all just watched that brief body-worn camera footage, at which you are shouting, screaming at Pc Rakesh Phakey (corr).
“His left bicep was unfortunately in close proximity to your face – and you bit him.
“The fact it was committed during a suspended sentence order was an aggravating factor, as was the fact you had been drinking heavily. The drink was not just because it was your birthday – but there are clear underlying causes why you had been drinking.
“There are older, deep-seated causes, but in particular, the incident that had taken place at your home had left you suffering PTSD and I can fully understand why you had turned to alcohol – not for entertainment, but as a crutch to get through a very time in your life.
“I start by saying in view of the history about which I have read in the pre-sentence report, and the medical letters I have received, about what had gone on a few weeks earlier… if I were to sentence today for a reduced period, the people who would suffer the most are not you but your children, with another on the way.” (closed quote mark)
“The effect it would have on your partner, children and unborn child… it would be unjust, in the circumstances.”
