Kirsty Sharman (pictured) was arrested and charged with a public order offence after paramedics claimed she verbally abused them 
This is the woman accused of leaving an abusive note on the windscreen of an ambulance attending a 999 call.
Kirsty Sharman, 26, is due to appear in court on Tuesday after being charged with a public order offence and breaching a restraining order.
Police said paramedics attending to an elderly person with breathing difficulties in Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent, were subjected to verbal abuse.
Paramedic mentor Katie Tudor also posted a picture of a handwritten note which was left on the windscreen of the ambulance.
It read: "If this van is for anyone but Number 14 then you have no right to be parked here.
"I couldn't give a s**t if the whole street collasped (sic).
"Now move your van from outside my house."

Paramedics attending an emergency in Stoke-on-Trent were shocked to receive this note from a female resident angered that the ambulance had parked in an area for resident's only parking

Neighbours said Sharman doesn't even own a car and the disabled bay outside her home was for the previous owner.
She was described as a "neighbour from hell" by one who accused her of "terrorising" her street.
Just hours after Sharman was charged by police, she appeared to respond to the furore with another foul-mouthed message on Facebook.

"Go talk ya b******t elsewhere," she wrote.
The note sparked outcry on social media after Ms Tudor drew the attention of Staffordshire Police Chief Constable Gareth Morgan to it.

'So upset to be sent this': Paramedic Katie Tudor, tweeted the image of the angry note to highlight the problem of ambulance crew distressed by verbal abuse while attending a call

Many reacted with disbelief and anger, with one official ambulance service Twitter account commenting "sadtimes".

Staffordshire Police said in a statement: "We’ve charged a woman from Stoke-on-Trent following an incident yesterday afternoon (18 February) where paramedics from the West Midlands Ambulance Service were subjected to verbal abuse whilst they attended a medical emergency.
"Kirsty Sharman, aged 26, from Tunstall, is charged with a Section 5 Public Order offence and breach of a restraining order. "

Sharman will appear at the North Staffordshire Justice Centre in Newcastle-under-Lyme tomorrow (20 February).
Paramedic operational manager Mike Duggan said 'people seem to have not respect for the work we're doing or the fact we're helping someone. We don't block roads for the sake of it'

Paramedic Tasha Starkey previously tweeted a picture of this note found on her car reading: 'You may be saving lives but don't park your van in a stupid place and block my drive'
