A self-styled model, actress and dancer was met by police as she returned from a romantic St. Valentine’s Day getaway after drunkenly abusing fellow passengers on the flight.
Mum-of-two Parise Leandra Marciano Gale, 27, was so drunk she thought she was still in Marrakesh, Morocco after landing at Gatwick Airport.
The former property lettings agent, of Ifield Road, West Brompton pleaded guilty today to being drunk onboard the EasyJet flight on February 21.
Prosecutor Mr. Mark Kateley told Crawley Magistrates Court: “A few weeks ago there was an incoming EasyJet flight from Marrakesh and this defendant was onboard that aircraft.
“There are reports to the fact she was in a very intoxicated state and quite loud and some passengers told her to be quiet and she responded with unpleasant abuse.
“The police were told there was a drunk female onboard and she was met off the aircraft by police, who recorded her being loud, shouting and extremely inebriated.
“She was so inebriated she was under the impression she was still in Marrakesh and not the UK.”
Gale, who studied performing arts at Hammersmith College, has three previous convictions for assault, receiving a suspended prison sentence in 2016.
Her lawyer James McAllister told the court: “She apologises and expresses her remorse and embarrassment.
“She has anxiety and had stopped taking her medication and was nervous on the flight and got drunk to get through the flight and there was an argument with another passenger that boiled over.
The court heard Gale is now a full-time carer for her grandmother, who is battling cancer, and has a son, aged seven and a six year-old daughter.
“She is a regular church attender and has discussed this incident with her minister.”
Magistrate Lesley Overington told the emotional Gale: “You know why you’re here. It was not a good thing to get drunk on an aircraft.
“It is a serious offence. Don’t do it again.”
Gale - who could have received up to two years imprisonment if the case was sent to the Crown Court - was fined £150, with £85 costs and a £30 victim surcharge.
“I’ll never do this again,” Gale told the court. “I’m never going to drink on a plane ever again.”
