In the courts
A 22-year-old man has been jailed after he kicked a police officer in the chest at Birmingham New Street station.
Timothy Joseph Hudson-Burke, of Sandon Road, Birmingham, was found guilty of Assaulting an Emergency Worker and Resisting an Officer in the Execution of their Duties.
He was sentenced to eight weeks in prison at Birmingham Magistrates' Court on Wednesday 13 September. He was also fined £200.
The court heard how, on Friday 11 August, at around 7.30pm, officers were carrying out high visibility patrols at Birmingham New Street when they became aware of three men acting suspiciously.
As officers approached them, Burke became aggressive and kicked one of them, with force, to the torso. He was subsequently arrested following a struggle.
Sergeant Kamran Arshad said:
"Violence and aggression against anyone is simply not acceptable. Burke's actions resulted in him receiving a prison sentence where he will hopefully now reflect on his actions.
“I hope this sends a clear message that assaults on officers carrying out their duties will not be tolerated and we will always seek to bring offenders before the courts to face justice.”
