One of Britain’s highest-ranking female police officer popped her left boob out in a vicious argument with a colleague about the size of her breasts, a disciplinary panel has been told.
Assistant Chief Constable Rebekah Sutcliffe ranted drunkenly at a colleague for over an hour, saying she, ‘used to respect her but no longer did since she had the ‘boob job’.
Ms Sutcliffe said to Temporary Superintendent Sarah Jackson, ‘Sarah, it does not matter how hard you work now because you will always just be known as the girl who had the tit job.’
Fiona Barton QC, opening the case for Greater Manchester Police, said ‘It was at this point that ACC Sutcliffe took hold of the front of her dress, pulled it down and exposed her left breast saying ‘Look at these, look at these, these are the breasts of someone who has had three children. They are ugly but I don’t feel the need to pump myself full of silicone to get self-esteem.’
The drunken tirade took place at last May’s annual Senior Women In Policing Conference in Manchester.
Ms Sutcliffe was unable to recall how exactly how much she had to drink but later recalled she “probably” drank three of four glasses of wine at dinner and more later when delegates retired to the hotel bar.
Ms Sutcliffe, who is currently suspended, admits misconduct but denies gross misconduct, which could lead to dismissal.
