He said she shouted and swore at her partner and police and started throwing furniture around.
The court heard officers believed she was under the influence of drink or drugs.
Mr Warden said Duke kicked a PC to his legs and tried to bite him, then kicked out towards his colleague.
He said Duke tried to bite that PC's ankle, but was eventually overpowered with incapacitant spray and handcuffed.
Magistrates adjourned sentence for a probation officer to prepare a report.
Duke was released on unconditional bail to return on December 12.
