A MUM who drove drunk after eight double vodka cokes has boasted about being spared jail by sharing an image of a roast dinner on Facebook.

Ann-marie Addinall, 30, drove off with a woman hanging out of her car window, vandalised her ex-partner’s vehicle and spat at a police officer as he arrested her.

Her crime spree came to an end when police spotted her driving the vehicle on its rims in April this year, Hull Crown Court heard.

She was given a 12 month sentence, suspended for two years on Friday morning, HullLive reports.

After her court appearance she shared a photo of a celebratory roast on Facebook boasting she was “very fortunate” to avoid jail.

Addinall wrote: “I should not go to prison more often.”

She thanked pals for supporting her and added “let’s get on with life shall we?”

Prosecutor Stephen Welch said Addinall’s night began after she got behind the wheel of her white Vauxhall while drunk.

CCTV from earlier that night showed the defendant with friends each drinking eight double vodka and cokes.

Addinall bumped into the car in front of her while waiting at a set of traffic lights.

The mum and daughter of the car she hit got out of their damaged vehicle.

They said Addinall had not “taken much notice of the damage and tried to drive away”.

The mum tried to get the defendant’s keys out of the ignition, but was sent flying when the car forcefully came to a stop, smacking her head on the pavement.

CRIME SPREE

Addinall then got out of her car and pushed the daughter to the ground, before picking up the keys and driving off.

The victim was left with a bald spot and needed five staples for her wound.

She told the court the injuries “made her upset” and that night gave her nightmares.

The court heard that Addinall’s offending did not stop there.

About 20minutes later she drove to her ex-partner’s address after calling him and hearing another woman’s voice on the phone.

Mr Welch said Addinall then scratched something “unpleasant” into the bumper of his car.

He added: “The damage to his vehicle cost around £6,600 to repair.”

Afterwards, she travelled 1.27miles to her former address.

The court heard she was trying to find a friend’s address to fix her flat tyre.

She was then spotted by police at about 1.35am.

‘NIGHT OF MADNESS’

Mr Welch told the court: “The officers noticed the defendant was driving on just the rim of the tyre.

“They pulled her over and when she got out of the vehicle she became aggressive and spat at one of the officers while she was being detained.

“When they breathalysed her, they found she was 1.5 times the drink drive limit.”

Addinall pleaded guilty to two dangerous driving offences, two assault by beating charges, criminal damage and drink driving.

Catherine Kioko-Gilligan, defending, told the court: “The defendant is completely and utterly disgusted by her actions.”

Judge John Thackray QC gave Addinall her suspended sentence and she must also undertake a 25 day rehabilitation requirement as part of a community order.

She is also disqualified from driving for 18 months and must take an extended retest.


Judge Thackray told her: “This was a set of serious crimes and the risk you took for the safety of yourself and other members of the public was enormous.

“It is luck more than anything that no one was serious injured or there was a fatality.

“This was, by any standards, a night of madness.”
