A PSYCHIATRIC report has been ordered on a woman who held a knife at a police officer's throat after she was removed from a third floor window ledge.
Drunken Virginija Jurkiene also threw hot tea into the same police woman's face leaving her with a blistered mouth, Fenland magistrates were told.
Jurkiene appeared in custody at Wisbech courthouse today - on two previous occasions her behaviour had prevented her from being brought before magistrates.
On February 3 she was found lying in the road outside the courthouse, and was detained under the Mental Health Act. Four weeks later she arrived at court with a syringe and was found with blood pouring from her arm.

Magistrates heard how paramedics and police were called to Jurkiene's home at Oakroyd Crescent, Wisbech, in the early hours of December 8, where she was laying on the ground.

She was taken inside, but then climbed on to a ledge. After being removed, she spat in Pc Bax's face and was placed in a spit hood and leg restraints, said prosecutor Andrea Fawcett.
When taken to March police station, Jurkiene asked for some tea and told Pc Bax "you watch me", before throwing the hot liquid into the officer's face.
Pc Bax was treated in hospital, her face and neck was reddened, and she suffered blisters inside her lip.
The offences put Jurkiene in breach of a 12-week suspended jail sentence she was given in May.
Solicitor Ann Winyates said: "She has been getting into difficulties with alcohol and mental health issues for some years.
