A WOMAN who police approached for a welfare check on August 7 lashed out at the officers, threatened to slit one of their throats and encouraged a toddler that was in her car to slap them.
Karlie Selwood 23, of both Garema Road and Alamein Walk, Bathurst, was taken to Orange hospital where she was cleared by the mental health team and during a search police found a pink-handled tactical knife with a 12-centimetre blade.
Selwood appeared in Orange Local Court where magistrate David Day gave her two concurrent 12-month intensive correction orders for assaulting and intimidating police.
"Unfortunately for Miss Selwood she had the capacity to do it because she had a blade in her car," Mr Day said.
Selwood was also disqualified from driving for six months and was given a six-month conditional release order for driving while disqualified on August 18.
She was caught after she drove a licensed driver, in their own car, to Orange Police Station where she was approached by police.
She was also given and identical sentence for driving while disqualified on August 6.
