A Sydney woman who assaulted police, calling one male officer a "little bitch", after a boozy cruise on Darling Harbour has been placed on a good behaviour bond.
Lia Fekitoa and her friend Racheal Matycz, both 25, were among six people arrested on February 24 when a Constellation Cruises vessel was forced to return to the wharf to drop off a drunk passenger.
Police at the dock were told one member of the group assaulted staff and things became heated when the boozed-up revellers ignored orders to stand back from a walkway.
Fekitoa pleaded guilty to assaulting and resisting police when she appeared before Downing Centre Local Court on Wednesday.
She became "highly aggressive" and screamed at police before swinging her left hand, according to the agreed facts.
"The accused started yelling at police saying 'f***ing little bitch'," court documents say.
Fekitoa also ripped an officer's shirt, then grabbed a police radio and refused to let go before "wrestling" with them.
She was hit with OC spray and arrested but was too drunk to be interviewed.
"I was highly intoxicated," Fekitoa told the court.
"It was out of my character to do something like that."
Matycz tried to calm the situation but was charged with resisting police. She pleaded guilty.
"I was just trying to be a good friend for her to prevent her from doing anything which may affect her in the future," Matycz said.
In sentencing Fekitoa, Magistrate Daniel Covington said police were entitled to do their jobs without being assaulted.
"There is no explanation before this court other than you were upset and you were intoxicated," he said.
"That does not excuse your behaviour."
She was placed on a 12-month good behaviour bond and a conviction was recorded.
Matycz, who has a five-year-old autistic son who's undergone two open-heart surgeries, escaped without conviction.
She was also placed on a 12-month bond, however Mr Covington believed her offence was "very minor".
"If alcohol causes you to make these decisions, you may need to re-think how much you're drinking," he warned Matycz.
Teresa Sio, 23, pleaded not guilty to her role in the fight and will return to court on April 26 while John Naisali, 26, pleaded not guilty and will return in May.
Theresa Ahofono, 23, did not enter a plea and is expected to return to court on April 24 along with Agnes Tuivailala, 24, who pleaded guilty to affray but not guilty to assault.
