A transgender beautician has been spared jail after she pushed a police officer onto Tube tracks after drinking four bottles of Prosecco.

Paris Valeta-Bregazzi, 30, pushed off-duty PC Sam Chegwin off the platform after he intervened during a row she was having with her friend identified only as Tom at Hanger Lane tube station in west London.

PC Chegwin heard shouting and told her to calm down, and she replied he ‘should mind his own business, as she wasn’t talking to him.’

He pushed her to the chest in order to prevent violence, but was unaware that she had undergone surgery.

She pushed him back with ‘excessive’ force onto the tracks, narrowly missing hitting his head.

He managed to climb back onto the platform and arrested her at about 5am on July 17 last year.

She later told police she had drunk four bottles of Prosecco, and did not appreciate he was an off-duty officer, the Old Bailey heard.

Valeta-Bregazzi pleaded guilty last November to one count of an unlawful act with intent to endanger a person on a railway.

She was handed a six-month sentence today, suspended for two years. Valeta-Bregazzi, of Highgate, north London, was also handed a rehabilitation order of up to 20 days.

Wearing a black leather studded jacket with blue faux fur, a black jumpsuit, flip flops and thick black glasses, she showed no emotion as sentence was passed.

The court heard she has 39 convictions for 62 offences, mainly for theft and violence, and was fined in May last year for racially aggravated harassment.

She also has a history of mental health problems, depression and drug-related difficulties

Recorder Jeremy Dein QC said: ‘He says in his statement he identified himself as a police officer, and that he used a defensive push aimed at your chest in order to maintain a safe gap, and that you came at him aggressively.

‘The result of which is that he was thrown on to the tracks, fell between the railway lines, missing striking his head by just a couple of inches.

‘The fact is that he could have been killed by the fall and hitting his head, electrocuted, hit by an oncoming train or by a combination of those circumstances.’

He added: ‘Mr Chegwin is extremely fortunate that he wasn’t seriously injured or killed.

‘And so are you, because you might well be here now, or certainly have been, at court facing far more serious charges.

‘And for Mr Chegwin, far more horrendous consequences than in fact unfolded.

‘Mr Chegwin pushed you genuinely believing that it was necessary in order to fend off the risk of violence unfolding, and in order to minimise any possible danger to the public.

‘And I don’t criticise his decision in any way. However, it is clear to me from having viewed the CCTV that you reacted spontaneously.

‘You had significant surgery on the part of the body in which he made contact, although he didn’t know it.

‘Furthermore, you didn’t appear to me, having viewed the CCTV, to have formed any malign intent.

‘But to have reacted spontaneously without appreciating the ramifications of what it is you were doing.

‘That’s my view of the facts in this case. Having said that, the consequences of what you did were serious.

‘And your error of judgement is a matter to be noted, as one which could have caused, as I have indicated, far greater ramifications.

‘Mr Chegwin was acting in a public spirited manner by intervening and seeking to prevent the escalation of violence.

‘I have no criticism of him. He didn’t appreciate that he was making physical contact with a person, being yourself, or special vulnerability.

‘You must understand that you have to control yourself.’

Mustapha Hakme, defending, said she was continuing to have appointments with regards to the ‘final stages of her transition”
