A TEENAGER who was so intoxicated she passed out at McDonald's, seemingly sprang to life and ran from ambulance officers who were trying to treat her.

The Warwick Magistrates Court last week heard police were called to assist ambulance staff at the restaurant on the afternoon of December 29.

The paramedics told police they had attempted to treat an "unresponsive" Mary Lyn Brimble before she came to and ran away from them.

Police located the 17-year-old, who was described as being "paralytic" by her solicitor, outside a Warwick hotel.

The court heard she was "aggressive and unco-operative" with police, who noted her slurred speech and bloodshot eyes.

After she was eventually restrained by police, Brimble was taken to the police station and placed in a cell.

Shortly after, Brimble passed out again and had to be taken to hospital.

Acting Magistrate Dennis Beutel scolded the teenager for her behaviour towards the ambulance staff trying to care for her.

"They were trying to help you and you did not repay them very well at all," he said.

Brimble pleaded guilty to obstructing police and being drunk in a public place and was fined $250.
