Teen criminal leaves police stunned after chewing through restraints

A teen criminal was labelled ”somewhat impressive” in court – after she CHEWED through a set of police leg restraints.

Delicia Wheeler, 19, was appearing before a judge for a harassment charge after ordering pizzas and taxis to a woman’s home.

Prosecutor Ben Worthington said the victim had unwanted takeaway meals and cabs delivered to her house in the name of “Delicia W”.

The woman also received abusive Facebook messages from the teenager of Swindon, Wilts.

Wheeler was also charged with breaching a criminal behaviour order on June 28 and allegations of drunk and disorderly conduct.

Mr Worthington then told the court when she was arrested for criminal damage she chewed through a set of police leg restraints.

It was a feat labelled “somewhat impressive” by the prosecutor at Swindon Magistrates Court.

Wheeler pleaded guilty to harassment, breach of a criminal behaviour order, criminal damage and two counts of being drunk and disorderly.

Magistrates ordered the probation service to compile a pre-sentence report and bailed her.

The harassment took place between June 18 and 27. The victim was now scared to leave her home and had taped up her letterbox.

Luke Jameson, defending, said his client had been diagnosed with autism, PTSD, anxiety, depression, a borderline personality disorder and an attachment disorder.
