Woman allegedly refuses breath test while picking up child from school

A woman who allegedly crashed into bushes and small trees while trying to park at a school in NSW has been charged after allegedly refusing a police breath test.

It’s understood the 60-year-old woman was attempting to pick up a young girl, who is known to her, from a school in the Port Stephens area on Wednesday afternoon when she caught the attention of staff.

Police say school staff attempted to stop her from driving away, however she allegedly became aggressive and verbally abusive towards them.


Officers were called to the scene and requested the woman undergo a breath test, however she allegedly refused and was arrested.

Whilst being placed in the police vehicle, officers say the woman kicked towards a female senior constable, who thankfully managed to escape uninjured.

The woman was then taken to the local Police Station, where she again refused to submit to a further breath analysis and was charged with harass/intimidate school staff member attending school, refuse or fail to submit to breath analysis and assault police.

She was granted conditional bail to appear at Raymond Terrace Local Court on Monday 31 August.
