Glam Instagram star 'attacked officer' in drunken rampage after being thrown out of club

A glam Instagram model went on a drunken rampage during which she spat on a bouncer and pushed a police officer into a window sill after she was kicked out of a nightclub.

Hannah Pierson, 30, appeared to be “highly intoxicated” prior to her rampage at Crown Casino’s exclusive Club 23 in Melbourne, Australia, on May 13, 2018.

Ms Pierson appeared via video link from New Zealand at the Magistrates’ Court on Friday, May 7, where she pleaded guilty to six charges including various assaults, public drunkenness, and resisting an emergency services worker.

Police prosecutor Acting Sergeant James Carfi described the “unprovoked” attack as a “volatile and violent situation”, the Herald Sun reports.

Club 23 staff first noticed Ms Pierson while she was on the dancefloor, where they say she appeared to be “highly intoxicated”.

Security staff then asked her to leave the club but she refused to go, forcing them to escort her out the door.

But Pierson became violent and spat on a guard as he tried to lead her out.

Security then placed “flexible” handcuffs on her to protect other staff and customers at the venue.

Once outside the club, in a corridor of the casino, police were called to the situation.

They found Pierson passed out but when she woke up she became “verbally aggressive” toward officers, before being taken to a private area where she was assessed by a paramedic.

The court heard she then screamed at police “Do your job properly”, before pushing an officer over into a window sill.

She then kicked in a wall which fell on police, before officers slapped handcuffs on her.

Ms Pierson, who is a New Zealand citizen and is now back living in her native country, was living and working in Melbourne at the time of her rampage.

She has PTSD and was previously diagnosed with “oppositional defiance disorder” after a difficult childhood, the court heard.

Pierson recently moved back to New Zealand to receive mental health treatment but Magistrate Bate ordered Pierson to “return to the jurisdiction” to serve her punishment.

But that might be difficult according to Pierson’s lawyer Scott Kaiser who said she will need to remain an outpatient at a New Zealand hospital for the next 18 months.

He said his client hopes to gain work as a beautician and pleaded with the court not to impose a criminal conviction as it may harm her future job prospects.

But Magistrate Hayley Bate said she was “not satisfied” Pierson should escape a conviction for the “alcohol-fuelled crime”.

“All sentencing options will be open,” Magistrate Bate said.

“There isn’t any plausible reduction of moral culpability as yet.”

Magistrate Bate deferred the case to give Pierson and her legal team more time to compile a forensic psychiatric report outlining why she should not have to return to Melbourne for punishment.

Ms Pierson will return to court in August later this year.
