Daniel Barker, aged 35 and of Chatterly Drive, Stoke on Trent was found guilty of five counts of racially aggravated public order and one count of assault. He has been sentenced to three months in prison and ordered to pay £154 victim surcharge at Walsall Magistrates' Court on Saturday 27 August.
The court heard how on Thursday 25 August at around 9.10pm officers were called to reports of a fight outside Birmingham New Street Station.
On officers arrival Barker was acting drunk and disorderly and shouting swear words and racial slurs at members of staff and the public. He was arrested for being drunk and disorderly in a public place, he has acted erratically and while being restrained has spat at the arresting officer. He was further arrested for assaulting an emergency worker. His racial slurs continued and was arrested once more for racially aggravated public order.
As Barker was conveyed to custody he racially abused the officer in charge of his care in the vehicle and on arrival at custody continued to shout racial abuse at the Custody Sergeant.
In his interview Barker apologised for his behaviour and was unable to continue watching the body worn video from the officers at the incident as he found it too distressing and upsetting.
Investigating officer PC Aaron Sephton said: “This sentence should serve as a warning to others how unacceptable this behaviour is and it will not be tolerated. Officers should be safe and free from such abuse when carrying out their duties."
