A DRUNK woman who got in between police and a man they were trying to arrest has been fined $731, banned from a Maroochydore bar and ordered to do 40 hours of community service.

Anna Maree Seymour, 34, from Eudlo, was "quite intoxicated" when she and the man were kicked out of Solbar in February.

Police prosecutor Shane Raison said Seymour was belligerent and argumentative.

"She put her face approximately 15cm from the officer's face repeatedly shouting 'what's he done wrong?'," Sergeant Raison said.

Magistrate Rod Madsen warned Seymour, who said she rarely drank, situations like that could easily get out of hand.

"The best advice I can offer you is to stand back and let police do their job," he said.

Another woman will not be allowed back to Ocean St nightclub Old Soul, or the Maroochydore Safe Night Precinct, for 12 months after obstructing and assaulting a police officer on April 1.

When police tried to arrest Marcoola woman Maddleine Jayne Frances Harvey, 20, after she was removed from the club she struck one officer in the face about four times.

Solicitor Chelsea Emery said Harvey was so drunk she could not remember being behind the bar before she was kicked out.

"This has actually been a bit of a wake-up call for her," Ms Emery said.

Mr Madsen gave Harvey a year-long good-behaviour bond.
