Fine for ambulance rant woman

A WOMAN who verbally abused ambulance staff for parking in her road was fined yesterday.

Kirsty Sharman, 26, shouted at paramedics and left a foul-mouthed note on their vehicle in Stoke-on-Trent last week.

At North Staffordshire Justice Centre, Ms Sharman admitted that she wrote the note, which said that she “couldnt give a shit” if the whole street “collasped [sic].”

The ambulance had been responding to a neighbour’s 999 call to assist a woman “experiencing breathing difficulties,” prosecutor Liz Ryder said.

Ms Sharman then went into the street and abused a male paramedic, telling him: “Move your fucking van.”

Fining her £120, chairman of the bench Christopher Rushton told her: “This was an absolutely despicable incident.”
