Officers had already spoken to her earlier in the evening, Swansea Magistrates' Court heard.
Her friends tried to calm her down but as officers spoke to her she continued shouting.
"She remained agitated and continued to swear and shout," said Mrs Evans.
After her arrest, she continued to struggle with officers and had to be put into leg restraints.
Knowland, of Princess Way, Swansea, admitted a public order offence.
David Singh, representing Knowland, said Knowland had previous convictions but had moved to Swansea two years ago for a fresh start and had none since.
"She had far too much alcohol," he said.
Magistrates fined Knowland £60 and told her to pay £85 in costs and a £15 victim surcharge.
