A DRUNK hurled racial abuse at a security guard who suspected her niece was stealing beer.
Lisa Winner, 42, of Arnold Road, Dagenham, slapped John Mobula in the face while he was trying to detain the niece, whom he thought had stolen eight cans of beer at Asda in Dagenham.
He asked a customer for help and for the manager to attend the incident, Barking magistrates heard.
Winner then pushed a trolley towards him and shouted racial insults. She demanded that he let go of her relative.
The store's manager got hold of the young girl's jacket and said: "I won't let the girl go until police arrive."

Winner then shouted more racial abuse but was stopped in the car park and held until police arrived.
She told officers that she had drunk four cans of lager that day but she could remember her exchanges with the security guard. She was then charged.
Winner said: "At that particular time I wanted to help my niece. She was screaming and crying.
"My initial reaction was to go over to the security guard and tell him to let her go. I'm sorry for my actions."
Michael Meades, chairman of the Bench, asked: "Would you like to say anything about the racial abuse?"
She replied: "I have been drinking that day. I realise I did wrong."
Mr Meades described the case as a very serious matter and added: "We are looking at an unpaid work requirement at a medium level."
Winner admitted using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour which was racially aggravated, and assault by beating.
Mr Meades asked for a probation report to be compiled. He deferred sentencing until May 20.
Winner was released on unconditional bail.
