Police facts said Karlie Tyrrell had been acting ‘aggressively’ before exiting the Top Ryde shopping centre on December 22
The biological mother of missing boy William Tyrrell screamed ‘coppers lost my son you c***s’ at police before repeatedly spitting in an officer’s face in a late-night shopping centre showdown.
Karlie Tyrrell’s foul-mouthed outburst – where she appeared to blame cops for losing William – was laid bare in police facts for the December 22 incident shown to a court this week.
The incident came more than three years after she was told the devastating news William had vanished from his foster grandmother’s home on the New South Wales north coast.
The distressed mother appeared in front of a Sydney magistrate on Monday to plead guilty to assaulting an officer and swearing in a public place at Top Ryde mall, in the city’s inner west, on December 22.
Prosecutors told the court Tyrrell had been acting ‘aggressively’ – apparently toward shoppers – when security guards rang police.
When the officers arrived Tyrrell launched into a sweary tirade, saying ‘yous(e) are c***s’, police alleged. The tirade continued even after they asked her to stop because children were present.

‘The accused became very angry when (the) Constable … asked the (boy) what the marks on his legs were.
‘The accused has grabbed (the child’s) leg and stated ‘none of your f***ing business,’ police alleged.
The facts said when the officer began to speak to Tyrrell she said ‘f*** off ranga c***’, police alleged.
‘At this time the accused has began to draw saliva into her mouth by making a throat clearing noise.
‘She has then recoiled her head back and projected her lips forward, launching saliva from her mouth towards (the constable).’
The hocked up spit landed on the police officer’s right eyebrow and cheek.
Tyrrell spat on the officer again before police restrained her on the ground and handcuffed her.
Police later charged her with assault officer in execution of their duty and using offensive language in public.
Court documents revealed Tyrrell has a lengthy record of minor criminal offences
Where are you William? Karlie’s son William vanished from his foster grandmother’s home in Kendall, NSW last year. Neither his foster and biological parents are suspects
Tyrrell pleaded guilty to the offences a week ago.
In a written plea, she asked the court to consider she had suffered a panic attack and did not mention she was the mother of a missing child.
‘I recently found out I suffer from panic attacks which played a major part into my behaviour but I’m not making any excuses’.
Karlie Tyrrell, the boy’s father Brendan Collins and his foster parents have been ruled out as suspects in the police investigation.
