A drunken woman standing outside a pub punched a passerby completely out of the blue, a court heard on Thursday (3).
Jolene Turvey, of Comyns Road, Dagenham, called the stranger a “c***” and then threw a punch at her neck.
The 27-year-old mum-of-one had been drinking at The Goose pub in Romford when she lashed out on August 15.
The victim, another woman, was unknown to Turvey and had just been walking past the pub.
Police were called and security at the pub had to restrain Turvey, who challenged a member of staff to a fight.

Turvey pleaded guilty to common assault and to using threatening words or behaviour with intent to cause fear of violence.
Her defence lawyer said she was a weekend binge drinker who realised her behaviour was caused by alcohol problems.
