A DRUNK mum-of-two who urinated in front of families heading to Victorious Festival has been fined hundreds of pounds.
Kalina Bishop drank heavily on her way to the August bank holiday weekend music event.
I consumed a lot of alcohol on the way there, and I am very sorry about what I have done. It’s disgusting behaviour.Kalina Bishop, of Broadmere Avenue, Havant
The 24-year-old was refused entry at the main gate off Southsea Common after becoming a ‘huge problem’ in front of staff and the public, including young children.
Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court heard Bishop urinated in front of visitors, danced on top of a transport buggy and ‘lashed about’ when attempts were made to restrain her.
Bishop, who claims benefits and has two children aged seven and nine months, was ordered to leave but attempted getting into different entry points, including the artists’ section.
She was arrested on Sunday, August 30 – the night Johnny Marr, Basement Jaxx and Ray Davies appeared at Victorious Festival – after refusing to leave.
She was charged with failing to comply with an order excluding a person from an area, and using threatening or abusive words and acting in a way likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress.
Bishop, of Broadmere Avenue, Havant, admitted in court her behaviour was unacceptable.
She said: ‘I got my boyfriend to look after my children. I consumed a lot of alcohol on the way there, and I am very sorry about what I have done. It’s disgusting behaviour.’
Bishop’s actions were described as being a ‘long, sustained period of nuisance’ and she was ordered to pay £370 – made up of a £200 fine, £150 court fees and a £20 victim surcharge.
In a different case, Darren Curtis, 31, of Hewett Road, Fareham, admitted trying to bring amphetamine into Victorious.
The court heard how security staff spotted white powder under Curtis’ nose and he tried to conceal the class B drug in his trousers.
He was ordered to pay £250.
