Kirsty Bearfield threw her baby at a police officer, leaving her with life-changing injuries
A mother who trains as a bare-knuckle boxer threw her baby at a police officer has been spared a jail sentence.
Kirsty Bearfield was at the Hull Royal Infirmary after her eldest child suffered a 'non-accidental' injury.
But when officers told her that her two children should be looked after by their father for the night, the 24-year-old threw her baby at a detective constable in a fit of rage.
The police officer has been left with life-changing injuries and was forced her to leave her job.
She said Bearfield had 'robbed her of being a mother'.

The mother-of-two, who has four previous convictions for battery, admitted GBH but was spared prison.

Bearfield was at the hospital with her two children, their father, a social worker, and two police officers in November 2017, following a report of a 'non-accidental' injury to the older child, the court was told.
The injury was not found to be suspicious but the social worker decided the children should be removed from Bearfield's care to stay with their father that night.
Bearfield was sitting with the baby on her knee, as a detective constable stood in front of her explaining the decision.
Prosecutor Phillip Evans told Hull Crown Court: 'That was news which the defendant did not take well. She threw [the baby] at the officer with a look of anger on her face.'
The officer put her arms up and caught the 13kg baby without injuring him.
But the officer was in 'immediate discomfort', referred to a neurosurgeon and had an MRI scan which revealed a trapped nerve in her lower spine, requiring surgery.
