Woman in Norwich Jailed for Coughing in a Policeman’s Face after claiming she had the Coronavirus

A WOMAN that coughed directly into a police officer’s face then claimed she had the Coronavirus, was jailed today at Norwich Magistrates’ Court.

Joanne Turner, 35, kicked and damaged a car as it was parked outside Norwich train station at around 11pm on Wednesday, March 25.

Ch Supt Dave Marshall said: “Any abuse and threatening behaviour towards the emergency services is unacceptable at any time.”

Following further enquiries, officers located Turner to a property in William Kett Close where she became abusive. She then claimed she had coronavirus before coughing forcefully in one of the officer’s faces.
