Student, 33, gave pal carpet burns after dragging her round by her hair in drunken attack after boozy night

A STUDENT gave her friend carpet burns after dragging her by her hair in a drunken attack.

Leanne Todd, 33, and Nicola Patterson had an argument after a boozy night out in Edinburgh, Scotland on July 15 last year.

Todd – a mum-of-two – had been staying with Nicola, but then a fight broke out between the pair.

Edinburgh Sheriff Court heard yesterday that Todd "became aggressive" to Nicola at around 12.30am, the Daily Record reported.

Todd pushed Nicola and then grabbed her hair and pulled her to the ground.

Todd sat on Nicola while grabbing her hair before Nicola was able to keep her attacker away using two chairs to block a door.

The court heard that Nicola suffered carpet burns to her knees and a chipped tooth in the attack.

Cops arrived to find Todd "visibly intoxicated", but she claimed she didn't attack Nicola.

Sheriff Adrian Cottam said the incident seemed to be a “fight that got well and truly out of hand”.

Todd was ordered to carry out 65 hours of unpaid work.
