Incident at Airbnb A 20-year-old hairdresser, Yazmin Davies, was involved in a naked rampage at an Airbnb property in August of last year. The incident occurred after she attended the Creamfields music festival in Cheshire with her mother.
In the early hours of the morning, Davies began exhibiting erratic and violent behavior. Three police officers were called to the scene after a 999 call.
Despite her mother’s attempts to calm her down, Davies violently attacked the officers, biting one on the hand and kicking the other two.
Davies had no prior criminal record and claimed that her drink had been spiked with drugs. She was later taken into custody for several hours to sober up.
Davies was charged with three counts of assaulting an emergency worker and was ordered to pay each of the officers £50 in compensation.
She was also given a conditional discharge for 12 months and was required to pay £146 in costs and victim surcharge.
Davies’ defense argued that she had never taken drugs and was offered a caution, which she declined.
Her lawyer stated that she had only consumed two vodka drinks and a lot of water and had started to feel sick in the evening.
The defense also mentioned that she had suffered bruises and a black eye, but did not know how they occurred.
Character Witness A
message from Davies’ soldier boyfriend, Alfie Mason, was read in court, describing her as selfless and non-violent.
The defense argued that her behavior was out of character and that she would have accepted a conditional caution if offered.
The conviction is expected to impact Davies’ career aspirations to become a teacher.
