Jail for Sedgley drunk who kicked a cop
10:24am Monday 4th November 2013 in News
A DRUNK Sedgley man who kicked a cop while being taken to cells after his arrest has been jailed.
David Lees, prosecuting, told Wolverhampton Crown Court that Aaron Williams was "clearly intoxicated and verbally aggressive" when he lashed out.
Mr Lees told the court Williams was being taken to the cells when he began to struggle with police officers and he ended up on the floor.
He said: "He then raised both his feet to his chest and he kicked one of the officers hard on the leg."
At the time Williams, aged 21, was subject to a 12 month suspended prison sentence imposed for two charges of assault causing actual bodily harm and another of possessing a bladed article.
Williams, of Lauder Close, admitted assaulting the police constable and also breaching the 12 month jail term that had been suspended.
Judge Nicholas Webb ruled only immediate custody was appropriate and he brought the suspended jail term into effect telling Williams he would have to spend the year behind bars.
The judge further jailed him for three months for assaulting the constable but ruled that would run concurrently with the other prison term.
