A man who spat in the face of a police officer while he was being arrested has today, [Wednesday, 28 July], been jailed for 11 months.
25-year-old Samuel Davies was arrested at the Weighbridge on 23 June for breach of bail conditions, he resisted arrest and spat in the face of an officer which resulted in his further arrest for assault on a police officer. Davies continued to be verbally abusive and threatening towards officers while he was transported to police custody.
He was charged with the offence and initially appeared in the Magistrates Court on 24 June.
Chief Officer Robin Smith said: "Spitting in someone's face is abhorrent in any circumstances but made even worse when directed at a police officer going about his lawful duty during a global pandemic."
"The seriousness of this individual's actions have clearly been reflected in his sentence and I am confident this will not only reassure officers faced with similar circumstances, but will no doubt act as a deterrent in the future"
