A MUM who was "off her face" on drugs forgot about the school run while burgling a house, a court heard.
Yasmin Maulgue, 32, unleashed a terrifying rampage after being caught in a Hull home – throwing a bin at the house's owner before passing out.
Hull Crown Court heard the mum eventually came to and realised she had missed the school pick-up.
The Hull Daily Mail reported Maulgue had entered the home on November 6 after a drug binge.
A woman living there then came downstairs to find her handbag had been taken and her front door was open.
She went out in her car looking for the person who may have stolen her bag – but she was shocked when she found Maulgue in the kitchen holding her bank card and insisting it belonged to her.
The victim managed to grab the bank card out of Maulgue’s hand before calling for help.
Maulgue tried to take the card back but was stopped by the victim and her 13-year-old step-daughter.
After an altercation with the homeowner, she slipped as she tried to escape and launched a wheelie bin at the victim.
“You became aggressive,” said Judge Mark Bury. “However, you were so intoxicated you fell over into a fence and landed in the garden next door.”
She toppled backwards and lay unconscious surrounded by rubbish until she was arrested by police.
Suffering an overdose, she was taken to hospital and after coming to, said she had forgotten about the school run.
The traumatic incident left a big impact on the burgled family, with the 16-year-old daughter struggling with her mental health since – unable to sleep for weeks and feeling unsafe in her own house.
The daughter also suffered a panic attack when she came face-to-face with Yasmin again by coincidence at work.
“I believe that due to the state of the defendant she probably would not recognise either of us again,” said the victim.
A week after the attempted burglary, Yasmin was also arrested for crashing into two others again while under the influence of drugs.
But she has been given another chance by the judge and was deeply remorseful for her actions.
In a letter to the court, she said: “I am truly sorry for what I have put her family through. I sincerely apologise to them.

"I didn’t mean to cause anyone any emotional harm.”
Without face-to-face counselling, Yasmin's drug problem had "spiralled" through lockdown, but the court heard that she had made significant progress and was doing a lot better.
But should she offend again, she was assured by the judge that she would end up behind bars.
