Beautician jailed for assaults on Met officers
A beautician who attacked a Met officer just weeks after pushing another off-duty officer onto tube tracks has been jailed.
The Evening Standard reports that Paris Bregazzi was given a six-month suspended sentence for the first incident in which she pushed PC Sam Chegwin off the platform at Hangar Lane underground station.
He had intervened because Bregazzi, 30, had been arguing with a friend, the Old Bailey heard.
Following his intervention, in which he needed to push her in the chest defensively, she shoved him onto the tracks.
He landed just inches from the line prompting Court Reporter Jeremey Dein QC to tell the court that he had been lucky not to have been killed or electrocuted.
PC Chegwin managed to clamber back onto the platform following the assault.
Just a few weeks later on 5th March, Met officers were called to an incident on Stockwell Road, South London, where Bregazzi had been seen acting aggressively.
She threatened two women on the street, was throwing wheelie bins around and had damaged a car by throwing a brick at it.
She then walked out in front of a bus which had to swerve to miss her before kneeing PC Florina Russ in the chest.
On bail, transgender Bregazzi sprayed perfume at a man at Waterloo station and caused damage to a cell at Brixton police station.
At her trial she admitted assault and criminal damage.
The court head she had 64 previous convictions and that she had been diagnosed with a histrionic personality disorder.
Judge Rebecca Poulet QC activated the suspended sentence and Bregazzi was given four more months for the assaults and eight weeks for criminal damage.
