‘Lost the plot’: Woman threatened to kill after alleged attack

A WOMAN charged with assaulting two men walking their dogs and spitting at a police officer during an alcohol-fuelled incident allegedly said she would kill the men, a court has heard.

Earlville's Aisha Sandra Mclana Stone, 19, faces two counts of serious assault of a police officer and one count each of serious assault of a person over 60 and assault occasioning bodily harm.

Ms Stone has not pleaded to the charges and appeared via videolink in Cairns Magistrates Court on Monday when she applied for bail.

The court heard the men, 47 and 64, were walking their dogs through Lions Park at Earlville about 7.45am on Saturday when Ms Stone approached them and allegedly abused them.

Police allege the men acted in self-defence and Ms Stone became "agitated" by their actions.

About 8am, police arrived at the park and arrested her.

She allegedly spat in the eye of a constable while he put her in a police vehicle.

Defence solicitor Vince Knox said his client had been drinking heavily the night before at a party and the incident happened after she became upset with her sister.

"She lost the plot, there's just no excuse," Mr Knox said. "She knows that, she ­accepts that. There's no good reason for it."

Mr Knox told the court her threatening remarks made to police were alarming and that she accepted that she instigated it.

Police prosecutor Nick Anderson said there may be "chance encounters" because the defendant and complainants, who are not known to each other, live in proximity.

Magistrate Terence Browne said that the incident was serious as "innocent members of the public walking their dogs were set upon by you".

Mr Browne said she had a blood alcohol reading of 0.209 when she was taken to the Cairns Watch-house following the incident.

He said that was the equivalent of a driver with an open licence being four times over the legal limit.

Ms Stone was granted bail with conditions based on her lack of criminal history and her youth.

Conditions include not to contact the complainants and not to consume alcohol and drugs.

The matter is scheduled in court again on June 1 for a plea.
