Jade Nicholson launched the series of attacks in separate incidents just over a week apart during the summer.
But a judge sitting at Swindon Crown Court said he would give her a chance to stay out of trouble by putting off sentence for four months.
Chris Smyth, prosecuting, said the first matter happened on Friday July 27 when police found Nicholson in an extremely intoxicated state.
“They were trying to do the best by her, taking her to hospital,” he said, but on the way she twice spat at a paramedic.
When she was fit to go home the officers went to take her to The Foyer but she continued to be abusive trying to bite one and repeatedly hitting the other.
Mr Smyth said neither the male officer she tried to bite or the female she hit reported any physical injuries.
Just over a week later on August 4 Nicholson was in the Foyer, on Bath Road, when she went to a neighbour’s room.
After banging on the door she went in and started to accuse the occupant of raping a young girl.
Then, out of nowhere she punched him hard to the left side of his face leaving him with bruising.
Nicholson pleaded guilty to two counts of common assault and two of assaulting a police officer.
In May 2017 she was put on a 21 month jail term suspended for two years for stabbing Peter Gallagher with a steak knife.
Sentencing her then, Recorder Malcolm Gibney told her to take the opportunity. ” You are very unlikely to get another opportunity such as this, particularly bearing in mind your history.”
Richard Williams, defending, explained his client had been working with the Nelson Trust and completing the probation work on the suspended sentence.
Judge Robert Pawson said: “The position is Miss Nicholson, as you know, you have had an extremely difficult upbringing in way of childhood and adolescence.
“As tough as it may sound, you are 22. You are an adult. You are responsible for your actions.” [J4MB: So why didn’t he pass sentence accordingly?]
He said he would defer sentence to April and said she will not go to jail if she stays out of trouble, complies with her community order and other agencies.
“Normally the law says I should activate a suspended sentence. Given what I have heard and read it seems to me it would be unjust,” he said. [J4MB: WHY would it be unjust, other than because vagina?]
