Rachael Bailey, a violent male who identifies as a trans woman, was convicted at Brighton Magistrates’ Court of assaulting police officers in July 2018.  Bailey, from Cardiff, was given a 12-month conditional discharge and 14 days to pay a fine of £150 and a £20 victim surcharge.

Bailey, 37, had reportedly returned to Brighton’s Royal Albion Hotel at 1am after an evening out, with three New Zealand rugby players and planning to “enjoy the view from her hotel balcony.”

The court heard that the night porter didn’t recognise Bailey as a guest and said ‘we don’t accept prostitutes here’ and that the men were not permitted to go to the guest’s room. The men (who were not guests at the hotel) then left and a fracas ensued after Bailey complained to the manager, resulting in the police being called. The media report is notably light on details on how the situation escalated to the police being called by the night porter and two security guards in attendance.
