Deeping St James teenager Katie, 19, walked naked through Bourne Tesco after taking legal high ‘Benzo Fury’

Have your say

A YOUNG woman walked naked into a supermarket while high on a legal drug.

Katie Wilson, of Broadgate Lane, Deeping St James, went into the Tesco store in Cherryholt Road, Bourne, on the morning of Wednesday, May 23, wearing no clothes.

The 19-year-old had taken the legal drug “Benzo Fury”.

The substance hit national headlines this week after Scottish teenager Alex Herriot collapsed and died at the RockNess festival. He had earlier taken “Benzo Fury”.

Rob Arthur, defending Wilson at Grantham Magistrates’ Court on Monday, blamed her actions on her having taken the recreational drug.

Mr Arthur said: “The fact she went out to Tesco in Bourne naked shows the mental state she was in.

“These experiences mean she will never risk taking such substances again.”

Daniel Paulson, prosecuting, said Wilson was asked to leave the store after being abusive and aggressive towards staff.

He said: “She was then taken to a back office where something was found for her to wear.

“Police then attended and placed Miss Wilson under arrest.”

However, Wilson refused to leave quietly and kicked an officer, barefoot, in the face.

She also kicked a wing mirror off a police car and damaged a light inside the car.

Mr Paulson said: “She admitted the offences in interview. She said she had taken legal drugs which caused her to act in the way she did.”

Mr Arthur said Wilson was embarrassed to be in court for the first time.

He added: “This is clearly a day Miss Wilson would like to put out of her memory if she could.

“I don’t think she could be any more apologetic to the officer in relation to her behaviour that day.”

Wilson admitted outraging public decency and was fined £50.

She received a £150 fine after admitting assault and was given a one-year conditional discharge after admitting criminal damage.

She was also ordered to pay costs of £85 and a £15 surcharge.

Chairman of magistrates Jo Johnson said: “I hope you have learned your lesson.”
