A female yob who attacked her friend during a drunken argument before biting her on the BOOB has been jailed.
Chantelle Rouse “used her mouth as a weapon” during the nasty assault on her victim – leaving her with a ping-pong ball sized mark.
The 25-year-old had been drinking with her pal when they were picked up by two men on March 27.
The four of them carried on boozing at pubs in Derby before later returning to Rouse’s home in the Normanton area of the city.
But a court heard the mood turned sour at the house and Rouse tried to attack one of the men.
As her friend tried to intervene, she too was assaulted and received bite marks to her breast, arm and back.
On Thursday (1/9) Rouse was jailed for six months at Southern Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court after pleading guilty to assault.
Sentencing her, District Judge Jonathan Taaffe said: “This is an extremely serious offence and the attack on your friend was a breach of trust.
“Your mouth has been used as a weapon and she has been left with permanent scarring.
“This offence also happened while you were already the subject of a suspended sentence and it would be unjust for me not to activate that.”
Lynne Bickley, prosecuting, said the two women had been drinking in the Argosy pub, in Littleover, Derbys., and had been talking to two men who they left with and went into the city for more drinks.
They then got a taxi back to Rouse’s home where the attack took place.
Miss Bickley said: “The defendant started to argue with one of the males and the victim tried to intervene, she said ‘leave him alone’ and the defendant then attacked her.
“She bit her to the upper arm and to the breast, leaving her with a mark the size of a ping pong ball.
“The defendant was choking her at one point and she (the victim) was saying: ‘I don’t want to fight you.'”
Miss Bickley said the men left and the situation calmed down.
She said the victim, who was staying at Rouse’s address, tried to go to sleep on the sofa but was awoken again at 5am, around two hours later, by Rouse who was “freaking out about the mess”.
In a victim impact statement, the friend said: “I feel very disrespected by what has happened. I am scarred in places other people will see.
“I can’t understand why she did this to me, I was just trying to stop her assaulting the man and she attacked me instead.”
Sukhdev Bisla, defending, said Rouse suffered from depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.
He said: “Miss Rouse takes full responsibility for the assault.
“She does not seek to, in any way, minimise her actions. She knows it is all her fault.”
