The owner asked her to leave.

Caple became aggressive raising her fist and striking the man, aged 65, in the left eye.

She continued to yell and shout at the man before biting him on his breast.

Another tenant stepped in and pulled her off the man and Caple fled on foot.

She returned later that day about 45 minutes later. She entered the yard and started throwing chairs around - tenants detained her until police arrived.

When police attempted to arrest her she became violent and struggled with police.

Once the police got her into handcuffs and moved her towards the police car.

Caple then spat in the direction of the arresting officer, the spit landing on the officer's boot and leg.

Magistrate Mark Bucknall said the 103 days Caple had spent in jail would have served as a deterrent.

He sentenced her to a 12 month probation order.
