A WOMAN was found slumped in a drunken state after firefighters extinguished a small blaze in her home.

Kirstine Milne went on to call a police officer a “black b*****d” when she was in the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH) for treatment.

The 44-year-old appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court for sentencing last week.

Firefighters were called to Milne’s flat in Dumbarton Road, Partick, shortly after 9.30pm on February 24 last year.

Crews forced entry and found a small paper fire on the kitchen worktop.

Meanwhile, Milne was found to be “slumped in a drunken state” in a bedroom.

The fire was extinguished, and Milne was medically examined and taken to hospital.

Whilst within the A&E department, she was noted as being “disruptive” and “verbally abusive” towards staff.

Due to her behaviour, police were contacted, and staff refused to have her assessed, but she was discharged with no life-threatening injuries.

When cops arrived, Milne shouted, “you f****g p****s, let me go home and die”.

She also shouted “you f*****g black b*****d” towards an officer.

She was placed under arrest, however, was too intoxicated to be formally charged.

Milne’s lawyer revealed his client had drunk two bottles of wine.

He added: “She has no recollection of the incident.

“There was no fire damage to the property. She fully accepts her culpability. Ashamed and embarrassed would be an understatement. This is not in her nature.

“She has written a letter of apology to the police officer and is hoping that it can be forwarded to him.

“She does a lot of volunteering work and has recently completed a skills recovery course.

“There has been no further offending since and she is abstinent from alcohol. I believe there is scope for supervision.”

Sheriff Patricia Pryce replied: “The issue is punishment. I’m considering imposing a restriction of liberty order.”

The sheriff told Milne: “I can deal with this as an alternative to custody.

“These are serious matters; however, I do accept you have not been without your difficulties in life.

“I appreciate you have taken steps to address issues, but supervision will do you good.”

Milne was ordered to stay within her home between 8pm-8am for 21 weeks, as a direct alternative to custody.

She was also placed under social work supervision.
