A WOMAN spent the night in police cells after row with her sister over a pair of shoes.

Bolton magistrates heard how officers were called to Jade Couperthwaite's home on the evening of December 30.

"She was arguing with her sister and was very angry and aggressive, " said Shazia Aslam, prosecuting, who added that 28-year-old Couperthwaite refused to leave and go to another address for the night.

"She was continuing to be aggressive towards her mother who she was angry with for not taking care of her younger sister.

"Officers felt that to avoid a breach of the peace it was necessary to arrest the defendant."

Martin Pizzey, defending, said that Couperthwaite had been arguing with her sister over a pair of shoes, but the row had finished by the time police arrived.

"Police were summoned by her father, who lives in the same building but not the same property," said Mr Pizzey.

"The defendant thought she hadn't done anything wrong. There had not been complaints from the neighbours about noise and the like," he said. "She accepts she became stubborn." He added: "She has been in the cells since reflecting conduct. She apologises."

Couperthwaite admitted behaviour likely to cause a breach of the peace and agreed to be bound over to keep the peace for six months or pay £100.
